KENNEWICK, Wash. - Two people are in the hospital after a five car accident in Kennewick. The accident happened around 1:45 this afternoon. Police say the driver of a white van was going west bound on 10th Avenue from Garfield and hit a parked car but kept going. He then went a few blocks further and hit a parked truck which then hit two other parked cars.

The white van caught on fire but police say the driver and passenger got out with minor injuries. "He will be cited for the first car he hit, hit and run. The second collision or set of circumstances he'll probably be cited for a traffic fraction," said Officer Banner of the Kennewick Police.
