Suspect in WSU hit-and-run found incompetent

Associated Press
PULLMAN — Doctors have found an Idaho driver accused of striking two Washington State University students with his car incompetent to stand trial. Whitman County Prosecutor Denis Tracy says 31-year-old Daniel Noble will stay at Eastern State hospital for an additional 90 days. A judge ordered Noble to the hospital on Dec. 10 for a mental examination. Noble, a financial analyst in the University of Idaho Trust and Investment Office, was charged last month with two counts of vehicular assault, two counts of hit-and-run and one count of resisting arrest. The two struck pedestrians, Neil Waldbjorn, 19, of Malaga, Wash., and Hogun Hahm, 23, of Pullman, each suffered a broken leg and have been released from the hospital.
