Yesterday I told you the story of a suspected drive-by shooter in the Columbia Center Mall parking lot that had eluded police for a month. But police teamwork with the U.S. Marshall's tasks force prevailed.

Yesterday a fella hit another vehicle. Hey, it happens. But he decided to flee the scene. And now it gets worse for the poor fella. Kennewick Police alerted Washington State Patrol and they were in high-speed pursuit.  But things got a little dicey and the public could have been endangered by this chase, so they called it off. But remember I told you that police don't just give up and go home. Ever. Naturally, officers swarmed the area and found that the guy had wrecked. He went right through a fence and into a dirt field around 19th and Union Street.
