Man Pleads Guilty to Vehicular Assault



A Yakima man accused of running over two boys in October is sentenced to 15 months in prison.

Benjamin McKenzie pleaded guilty to two counts of vehicular assault after hitting 11- year-old Israel Sanchez and his brother, 10-year-old Chris Sanchez, while they were waiting at a bus stop.

Police say McKenzie was driving his car while under the influence of a controlled substance.

Both boys suffered numerous injuries, and have since then recovered from them.
