Posted: Updated:

UPDATE:

SEATTLE (AP) - King County prosecutors are expected to file charges Thursday against a driver who crashed into a family in Seattle, killing two people and leaving a mother and baby in critical condition.
    
Mark Mullan is held on $2.5 million bail for investigation of vehicular homicide and vehicular assault.
    
Investigators say the 50-year-old Seattle man was driving under the influence of alcohol Monday when he hit the family crossing a street.
    
The crash killed 66-year-old Dennis Shulte and 68-year-old Judith Shulte, retired teachers from Kokomo, Ind., who moved to Seattle last month to see their first grandchild. The crash critically injured their 33-year-old daughter-in-law, Karina Schulte, and her 10-day-old son.

UPDATE:

SEATTLE (AP) - A couple killed when a suspected drunk driver struck them while they were walking near a middle school were grandparents who'd recently moved to Seattle to be near their grandchild.
    
The couple's daughter-in-law and 10-day-old grandson were critically injured the Monday crash.
    
Sixty-six-year-old Dennis Schulte and 68-year-old Judith Schulte were pronounced dead at the scene.
    
Susan Morton, Judith's younger sister, said the couple had just arrived from Kokomo, Ind., to help.
    
The 50-year-old suspect in the accident, Mark Mullan, is being held on investigation of vehicular homicide and vehicular assault. He has not been formally charged.

UPDATE:

SEATTLE (AP) - Court records show the 50-year-old 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 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.

SEATTLE (AP) - Police say a pickup truck driver crashed into four pedestrians crossing a Seattle street, killing two and critically injuring two others - a woman and the infant she was carrying.
    
Seattle police spokesman Jeff Kappel says the driver, 50-year-old Mark W. Mullan of Seattle, may have been under the influence of alcohol or drugs. He was booked into jail Monday night for investigation of vehicular homicide.
    
It was not immediately known whether he had a lawyer.
    
Kappel says a 66-year-old man and a 68-year-old woman died at the scene Monday in a north Seattle residential neighborhood.
    
The spokesman says a 33-year-old woman and a 10-day-old infant were hospitalized at Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.
