Seattle Police are searching for the man they say hit a pedestrian with his car not once, but twice. It happened at about 11:30 p.m. Sunday, at a bus stop near the corner of Fremont Avenue North and North 105th Street.

Investigators say the victim was standing there with a friend, when the suspect drove his car onto the curb and headed straight for them.

It's not yet known exactly why the 40-year-old male was targeted, or how the victim and suspect might have known each other.

After striking the victim once, police say the car continued forward and crashed into several parked vehicles. Then, the driver backed the car up and hit the victim again.

The victim was taken to Harborview Medical Center. He's now in serious condition, but is expected to be okay.

At that point, the victim's friend, who somehow managed to avoid being hit, tried to tackle the suspect to the ground and detain him. He was unsuccessful.

Police say the suspect left his car behind and ran from the scene.

He's described as a Hispanic male, about five feet, four inches tall, last seen wearing a black jacket and tan pants.

Anyone with information should call the Seattle Police Department.
