NORTH BEND -- The King County sheriff's office says a deputy shot a man who drove a van toward deputies Thursday morning near North Bend.
Det. Jason Stanley said it happened about 2 a.m. when deputies spotted a parked van they had briefly pursued Wednesday because the driver was wanted on arrest warrants and not having a driver's license.
As they approached the van, the man started driving toward them so one deputy fired her pistol.
Stanley said the driver was hit in the head, but the wound is non-life-threatening. He's recovering at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
Stanley said the man is a 35-year-old Snoqualmie resident who is known to deputies from previous contacts. Deputies broke off Wednesday's chase after the van headed up a mountain road.
