Last night at the intersection of 15th Ave NW & NW 80th Street there was an altercation between a mini van and an adult skateboarder. According to the Seattle Police Department blog, the skateboarder was blocking the path of the van and began to smash the hood of the vehicle, shatter the windshield, and yell racial slurs toward the driver. While this was going on the van drove forward running over the skateboarder and pinning him underneath the vehicle.
By the time the medics and police responded, other bystanders had lifted the vehicle off the ground and got the injured person out. The injured party was transported to Harbor View Medical Center with what is being reported as serious injuries. According to the SPD blog, the mini van driver was released pending the results of the investigation. No updated has been given yet of the skateboarder.
