A man suspected of driving drunk to get a Black Friday deal at Wal-Mart hit two people who also were going for Black Friday deals, investigators said.

The driver, a 71-year-old man, was arrested for vehicular assault after deputies said he pinned a 45-year-old woman under his Mercury SUV. She was flown to Harborview Medical Center, the region's trauma center. A man in his 40s who was with her also was rushed to Harborview.

"The man rolled up onto the hood an onto the ground," Sgt. Cindi West said at the Covington Wal-Mart, which is about 25 miles south of downtown Seattle.
