SEATTLE (AP) — A person killed Saturday when a man who drove his car onto a closed Seattle freeway and into a crowd protesting police brutality was being remembered Sunday as someone who was dedicated to the cause. A second person who was hit remained in serious condition Sunday at a Seattle hospital. The Urban Animal veterinarian clinic where 24-year-old Summer Taylor worked in Portland, Oregon, said in an Instagram post that Taylor tirelessly stood up for others while working full time. U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris called it a heartbreaking incident. The driver of the car is in custody awaiting a hearing Monday.
