Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA--A Wapato man causes a car accident, then tries to get away by running into the Yakima County Courthouse.

Witnesses say 50-year-old William Sanchey turned left onto Second Street from the center lane of Lincoln Avenue and hit a car in the left lane at about 10:30 a.m. Friday.

He told the other driver he didn't have insurance, then ran into the courthouse, where security quickly arrested him.

He'll be booked on charges of hit-and-run.
