Vehicle strikes multiple protesters in Washington, 2 people sent to hospital

The unidentified 27-year-old suspect is in custody and faces multiple charges.

An overnight protest on a closed Washington state freeway ended with two women in the hospital after a motorist barreled into the crowd, according to Washington State Patrol.

For weeks, law enforcement authorities have warned pedestrian protesters not to use the highways as the setting for protests.

“The freeway is simply not a safe place…We feared something like this would happen,” said Captain Ron Mead, commander of Washington State Patrol field operations for District 2, at a press conference Saturday morning.

A 27-year-old man from Seattle is accused of driving his car onto the closed I-5, going around the vehicles that were supporting the protesters, and striking the pedestrians standing in the shoulder of the road, said Mead.

“We don’t know exactly where the vehicle came on, but we suspect he came on, on the wrong way of a ramp and entered the southbound lane of I-5, he did not come through on one of the closure lanes we had posted,” said Mead.

Interstate 5 between SR 520 and I-90 was closed multiple times in the last 24 hours due to protests.

A 32-year-old woman from Bellingham and a 24-year-old woman from Seattle were hit and taken to a nearby hospital.

The younger woman is in critical condition after suffering life-threatening injuries while the other victim is in stable condition.

The unidentified driver stopped the all-white sedan and was taken into custody for questioning. Mead said the driver passed a sobriety test and there’s no indication that the car was stolen.

“At the very least, he is looking at vehicle assault charges, felony hit-and-run, but those could be upgraded depending on the progress of the investigation,” said Mead, adding, “We don’t know if it’s a targeted attack, but that remains the focus of our investigation.”

Mead said police have made efforts to keep

Vehicle Repossession | FTC Consumer Information

Chances are you rely on your vehicle to get you where you need to go — and when you need to go — whether it’s to work, school, the grocery store, or the soccer field. But if you’re late with your car payments, or in some states, if you don’t have adequate auto insurance, your vehicle could be taken away from you.

When you finance or lease a vehicle, your creditor or lessor has important rights that end once you’ve paid off your loan or lease obligation. These rights are established by the contract you signed and the law of your state. For example, if you don’t make timely payments on the vehicle, your creditor may have the right to “repossess” — ­or take back your car without going to court or warning you in advance. Your creditor also may be able to sell your contract to a third party, called an assignee, who may have the same right to seize the car as the original creditor.

The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, wants you to know that your creditor’s rights may be limited. Some states impose rules about how your creditor may repossess the vehicle and resell it to reduce or eliminate your debt. Creditors that violate any rules may lose other rights against you, or have to pay you damages.

Seizing the Vehicle

In many states, your creditor can seize your vehicle as soon as you default on your loan or lease. Your contract should state what constitutes a default, but failure to make a payment on time is a typical example.

However, if your creditor agrees to change your payment date, the terms of your original contract may not apply any longer. If your creditor agrees to such a change, make sure you have it in writing. Oral agreements are difficult to prove.

Once you are in default, the laws of most states permit the creditor to repossess your car at any time, without notice, and to come onto your property to do so. But when seizing the vehicle, your creditor may not commit a “breach of the peace.” In some states, that means using physical force, threats of force, or even removing your car from a closed garage without your permission.

Should there be a breach of the peace in seizing your car, your creditor may be required to pay a penalty or to compensate you if any harm is done to you or your property. A breach of peace also may give you a legal defense if your creditor sues you to collect a “deficiency judgment” — that is, the difference between what you owe on the contract (plus repossession and sale expenses) and what your creditor gets from the resale of your vehicle.

Selling the Vehicle

Once your vehicle has been repossessed, your creditor may decide to either keep it as compensation for your debt or resell it in a public or private sale. In some states, your creditor must let

What is vehicle telematics? – ExtremeTech

Tesla Model S

Telematics makes your car safer, keeps you from getting lost, summons roadside assistance at the press of a button, routes you around accidents, auto-dials 911 if you’re in the accident, and starts your EV charging at 2 a.m. when rates are cheapest. Those are a few of the features that make up vehicle telematics. But what is telematics? For most users, telematics means navigation, communications, safety, security, and increasingly infotainment.

Basically, telematics is a crash-resistant black box that receives wireless information, information more advanced than broadcast radio, and does something useful with it. Telematics doesn’t have to include two-way communication, but most of the good stuff involves going both ways. Usually there’s an embedded cellular modem as with GM’s OnStar. Some of the telematics work can be handled by your connected smartphone, as happens with Ford Sync. Here’s our backgrounder on vehicular telematics.

OnStar as the prototype for telematics

The best way to explain telematics is to describe OnStar, the original passenger car telematics systems, first announced by General Motors in 1995. The automaker mounts a cellular data modem, GPS, a backup battery, and connections to sensors. The box goes in the back of the car, shielded from most crashes. It connects to a roof-mounted antenna that has more range than your mobile phone has.

The best-known feature is automatic crash notification (ACN). When a vehicle sensor reports a significant accident, OnStar sends that information to an OnStar call center, which then makes a voice call reporting the accident and location to one of the nation’s PSAPs, or public-safety answering points, essentially a 911 service. At the same time, OnStar opens a voice link to the car to get more information from the occupants and necessary and reassure frightened or confused occupants until help arrives.

OnStar is used most often for navigation, sending a destination to the car from a smartphone or web browser, or having it looked up and sent to the car by the call center. Remote door unlock is also common, for times when you lock your keys inside. Over time, OnStar and other services are adding low-overhead, high-perceived-value features such as monthly vehicle diagnostics reports. OnStar also rolls in data services such as weather, sports scores, stocks, movie times, and traffic information.

You pay for the service, typically $20 a month or $200 a year, or $30/$300 for concierge level telematics where you can ask a call center staffer (“advisor”) to do things such as look up an address and send that to your navigation system. Over time, OnStar is moving more functions to virtual advisors (voice recognition systems) and to smartphone apps. Now the owner can remotely unlock the car in a couple seconds, where a call to an advisor might take a couple minutes.

Telematics: the core services

Most every car with telematics has a core of common features. These are the ones you’ll either use a lot or

Juveniles arrested for vehicle theft in Barstow

BARSTOW, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A couple of Barstow juveniles were arrested for vehicle theft after attempting to run from officers, officials said.

At about noon on Thursday, March 26, 2020, deputies from the Barstow Police Department observed a male juvenile run out of the QMart store on May Avenue with a bottle of liquor.

When the officers attempted to stop him he fled. The officers eventually caught the male and arrested him, officials said.

According to a news release, “they confirmed that the male stole the liquor and returned it to the store. The male was issued a citation for the theft and released to his parent.”

At 3:50 pm Barstow Police Dispatch Center received a report of a stolen vehicle. The victim reported that she left her Ford Focus running for a few minutes as she went into her home and in that time someone stole it.

Detective Lewis located the vehicle in the 700 block of East Virginia Way occupied by a driver and passenger. Upon seeing the officers the male driver and male passenger fled on foot, officials said.

Officers were able to catch the male driver and place him under arrest. The officers recognized the male as the same one who had stolen the liquor earlier in the day at QMart.

The officers continued to search for the passenger and located him at Lillian Drive and Kelly Street. He was also placed under arrest.

Both male juveniles were booked at the Juvenile Hall in San Bernardino for VC 10851 – Theft of a Vehicle.

Judge sets $500,000 bail for four charged in Bozeman-area vehicle break-in cases

BOZEMAN — Elmer Edison, Xavier Taylor, Joshua Blair, and Andrea Monroe are in police custody after what officials are calling felony lane gang after a series of car break ins and other thefts.

“They’d already booked reservations in Billings at an AirBNB. So, after they were done with this area, they were in route to Billings to conduct a crime spree there,” said prosecutor Jaydan Johnson.

All four co-defendants made an appearance in court Monday morning after they were arrested by Bozeman police last Friday at an AirBNB home.

“These vehicle break ins and thefts started last week, primarily at trailheads within the county, local parks within the city of Bozeman,” explained Detective Sergeant Joseph Swanson with the Bozeman Police Department.

Unoccupied vehicles in public places, and it didn’t matter whether the vehicles were locked or unlocked.

“Primarily what we were seeing is unlocked vehicles were being entered and property was being taken such as: driver’s licenses, checkbooks, financial instruments, and the vehicles that were locked unfortunately, their windows were broken out,” Sergeant Swanson said.

Sergeant Swanson says these four people were identified after a series of tips and sightings from witnesses.

“It’s very unusual for law enforcement to intercept an entire crew. But they were staying at an AirBNB. They had license plates. They had wigs. They had items from the stolen vehicles,” Johnson explained.

Bond was set at $500,000 for each person, which came as a surprise to a couple of them.

“My bond is set at $500,000 due to the circumstances that’s going on in the world right now?” asked Taylor.

“Sir, I have a baby on the way. I have a baby on the way,” pleaded Blair.

All four co-defendants will have their preliminary hearings in district court on May 22nd.
