An investigation indicates shortly after a male suspect stole a pickup truck at knifepoint, he struck a man riding a scooter.
The suspect then proceeded to strike two bicyclists, a parked vehicle, as well as the owner of the parked vehicle, in the 400 block of Yesler Way.
Authorities confirmed two victims were transported to local hospitals. The man on the scooter suffered a possible broken ankle, and one of the bicyclists suffered two broken legs. The other bicyclist sustained minor injuries and declined transport to a hospital.
Although the owner of the parked vehicle was pushed by his own car during the collision, he was not reported seriously injured.
Washington State Patrol said the suspect driver was later apprehended by officers in the University District.
