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.
