An 18-year-old Grandview man was arrested in connection with a hit-and-run after his vehicle hit the police car that was chasing him Friday.
Adalberto B. Brito was being pursed by a Mabton police officer while driving east on Highway 22 about three miles east of Mabton at 1:30 p.m., the Washington State Patrol reported.
Brito allegedly failed to yield and attempted to get out of his 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier while it still was rolling. It continued to roll and hit the 2006 Ford Police Interceptor, the state patrol said.
Brito and the police officer were not injured. Brito was not wearing his seat belt.
The police car was driven away from the scene. It is unknown if drugs or alcohol were involved, the state patrol reported.
