At least four people were injured Saturday morning when a car drove over multiple campsites at the Gorge Campground near George.

Tanner A. Drayton-Williams of Woodland Hills, Calif. is facing four counts of second degree assault for allegedly hitting pedestrians, tents and parked vehicles with his car.

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

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

The Sasquatch! Music Festival is being held at the Gorge this weekend.
