Video made by the another “protestor” who was also hit but still, at this time, survives in intensive care.
Scene: A “Black Femme March” and blockade of I-5 done with the help of Seattle Police and Washington Highway Patrol which has evidently been shutting down this portion of I-5 through Seattle for most of the month.
UPDATE: The full ironic stream of the “Diaz Love Was Live” video. Diaz Love was working closely with Summer Taylor, the non-binary who lost him/her/it life. It’s nearly but you can skip ahead to 1:28 to see how inane, useless, and banal the entire I-5 “Protest” was.
Some driver/manager from Door Dash come around a corner into more shadowy lighting of I-5 (I’ve lived in Seattle and driven this at night.). Suddenly there are these mostly black-clad bodies in front of him and he zigs. Black-clad “protestors” zag but two zig right in front of him as he swerves to miss the others. And the one filming is one of those hit as you can see at the end.
Postscript: Protestor killed is white. Driver of Doordash is black from Somalia.
Summer Taylor, a non binary Black Lives Matter activist who was hit by a car while protesting on the I-5 freeway in Seattle, has died. Dawit Kelete, who is black, is accused of being the driver & was arrested. pic.twitter.com/Lr6Jp3BkzO

PPS: The Washington Highway Patrol has now decided that letting children play on I-5 at night in Seattle is not a good idea and says that they are, by Gum, going to stop it. Wanna bet?
Accident as it happened. Warning: Graphic
