Driver suspected in deadly crash had been arrested twice for DUI

SEATTLE — Court records show the driver suspected of hitting a group of pedestrians near a Seattle middle school, killing two and gravely injuring two others — including a 10-day-old baby — was arrested twice recently on drunken-driving charges.

The Seattle Times reports that Mark W. Mullan, 50, had at least two previous drunken driving cases — one in Seattle and another in Snohomish County — in the past four months.

A 66-year-old man and a 68-year-old woman died at the scene Monday. Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Susan Gregg says a 33-year-old woman and a 10-day-old infant remain in critical condition Tuesday morning. It was not known whether the woman was the infant’s mother.

Seattle police say alcohol or drugs may have been a factor in the crash.
