GEORGE, Wash. (AP) – The Grant County sheriff’s office has identified the man who drove his car into the Gorge Amphitheater campground, injuring three people and himself.

Tanner A. Drayton-Williams of Woodland Hills, Calif. was arrested and is facing four counts of second degree assault. Authorities say he hit pedestrians, tents and parked vehicles at the campground on Saturday.

Sheriff’s spokesman Kyle Foreman said the 19-year-old Drayton-Williams was under the influence of drugs.

The injured, including the driver, were taken to Quincy Valley Hospital. The driver and two others were treated and then released. One person was transferred to another hospital for treatment of multiple broken bones and internal injuries.

The Gorge Amphitheater is hosting the Sasquatch! Music Festival over the Memorial Day weekend. Camping at the amphitheater is part of the festival.
