1 dead after Quinault tribal members were run down by man in pickup truck at Washington campground

  • Law enforcement officials are seeking a man in a white pickup truck who allegedly ran down two members of the Quinault Indian Nation over Memorial Day weekend, according to multiple reports.
  • One of the victims, 20-year-old James “Jimmy” Kramer, died of his wounds Saturday night. His friend, 19-year-old Harvey Anderson, was released from Tacoma General Hospital on Sunday.
  • The incident occurred Saturday morning at a campground off Donkey Creek Road, near Hoquiam, Washington, 100 miles southwest of Seattle. 
  • Witnesses said a white male in his 30s driving a white Chevrolet pickup truck pulled onto a gravel bar around 1:30 a.m. and started doing “donuts,” spraying debris in the camping area.
  • Kramer, Anderson and other campers reportedly yelled for the driver to stop. The driver responded by targeting individual campers, driving over Kramer and Anderson before fleeing into the night. 
  • Police do not have a suspect yet. In press release, the Quinault tribe said the driver was heard “screaming racial slurs” as he drove, according to Last Real Indians. Read more (5/30/17)
