Native American Man Dead After Being Run Over By Driver | Teen Vogue


Native American Man Dead After Being Run Over By Driver | Teen Vogue: On May 27, 20-year-old Jimmy Kramer and his friend Harvey Anderson, 19, were run down by unknown assailants at a camp site in Washington State, an incident that left Jimmy dead and Harvey hospitalized. Both young men were members of the Quinault Indian Nation — and leaders of the tribe are concerned the act was racially motivated.

The Seattle Times reported that Jimmy, a father of twin toddlers, and friends were camping at the Humptulips River when a man identified by witnesses as white and driving a white Chevy truck, began harassing the young men and was "spinning doughnuts and driving aggressively" at about 1:30 a.m., according to Lieutenant Brad Johansson of the Grays Harbor County Sheriff's Office.
