Truck plows into 4 people, kills 1, in Bellingham

The Associated Press

Police say a large pickup truck sped out of control in downtown Bellingham overnight, striking four people and killing one of them.

Bellingham police say the 27-year-old driver veered onto a sidewalk before 2 a.m. Monday and hit three pedestrians. The three were believed to be in stable condition at a local hospital.

The truck then plowed through a chained-off parking lot, killing a 37-year-old man. The truck also hit a sport-utility vehicle with three people inside, but officers say the passengers were not hurt. The truck hit two parked cars and then a barrier fence that kept it from plunging over a 10- to 15-foot drop.

Police say a crowd surrounded the truck and pulled the driver out, detaining him as police arrived.

The driver was arrested for investigation of vehicular homicide and vehicular assault.
