YAKIMA — Two brothers, ages 10 and 11, on their way to school were struck by a car and dragged Monday morning in Yakima.
Police say the 10-year-old was critically injured. He has been taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with multiple fractures and head injuries.
Capt. Rod Light told Yakima Herald-Republic the boys had just stepped out of their home and were drawing in the condensation on the family car when they were struck.

The driver was jailed for investigation of vehicular assault. Light said drugs or alcohol may have been involved.
