HARRAH, Wash. - Medics say a young teen is now in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after a sergeant accidentally ran him over while responding to a home invasion.

The 13-year-old suspect was hit by the patrol vehicle while fleeing deputies following an armed robbery, with reports of multiple suspects armed, at a home in Harrah.

Reports came in to the Yakima County Sheriff's Office around 5 a.m., Saturday of a home invasion at the 11600 block of Branch Road.

A responding sergeant attempted to follow the suspect through a hay field, when authorities said he accidentally struck him with his car.
