Hit and Run at 7/11

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Yakima Sheriff's Deputies are searching for a man who they say crashed into a 7-11 store, then drove off.

It happened around 12:30 Friday morning at the 7-11 on Terrace Heights Drive. Deputies say the man crashed into the front of the store, forcing an employee who was washing the windows to dive out of the way.

He was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

"I was worried about that guy, the guy who was washing the windows," says Joseph Clark, another employee at 7-11. "I got out there to make sure he was ok, then called the cops. It was kind of crazy because I was standing right there when it was coming toward us. Kind of freaked me out a little bit."

Deputies say they found the driver's black Dodge truck just a few blocks from the store. The man they're looking for is the registered owner of the truck.
