SEATTLE -- King County prosecutors filed charges Tuesday against the man accused of driving his car into three pedestrians near Pike Place Market last week.
Prosecutors charged Travis Lipski, 39, with two counts of Vehicular Assault for the December 16th incident. Prosecutors say Lipski had admitted to smoking synthetic pot before driving. As a result, Lipski was charged under both the "driving under the influence" prong of Vehicular Assault in addition to the "reckless manner" prong.
Bail was originally set by the court at $75,000 on Friday, and Lipski bailed out over the weekend. Prosecutors said based on his history of driving under the influence, they are requesting additional conditions to his bail, including restriction on any drug or alcohol use and driving.
Witnesses to the incident said Lipski's silver Subaru drove onto the sidewalk, hit two people and pinned a third against a produce truck.
Two of the victims were a couple from West Seattle. The 54-year-old wife is back home recovering from bruises, while her 57-year-old husband is recovering and in stable condition at a hospital.
The third victim, a 25-year-old woman, was treated and released from the hospital.
