BLAINE, Wash. – The man who hit a seven-year-old boy as he drove his pickup off a Blaine pier on Sunday is a 54-year-old Whatcom County man.
Police say Allan James May’s body was found on a British Columbia beach on Monday, the same day his truck was located at the bottom of Drayton Harbor.
The boy has two broken legs and a broken foot according to one of his neighbors.
He’s in the Intensive Care Unit at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
Witnesses say it looked like the truck intentionally crashed.
Salvage diver Mark Gumly says strong currents Tuesday kept him from being able to float the pickup to the surface of Drayton Harbor.
He plans to try again Wednesday.
