Officers Out of Hospital After Being Run Over Last Week
Two Yakima Officers run over by the driver of a stolen vehicle have been released from the hospital and are recovering at home. Sgts. Mike Henne and Mark Grow were both run over by the driver of a stolen vehicle in the east Yakima Walmart store last Tuesday afternoon. Sgt. Mike Henne is recovering from a fractured hip and Sgt. Mark Grow has a broken ankle. Both officers are expected to fully recover and both will be offered counseling to help them deal with the tragedy.
Meanwhile last Wednesday a 43-year-old man, identified as Salvador Munoz-Gonzalez arrested for running over the officers made an appearance in Yakima County Superior Court where bail was set at $250,000. He's facing charges of first-degree assault, eluding police and possession of a stolen vehicle.
The Yakima Valley Special Investigative Unit is now investigating the incident.
