YAKIMA, Wash. —

A driver who was high on methamphetamine when he hit two boys waiting for a school bus in Yakima was sentenced Thursday to 15 months in prison.

Benjamin Lea McKenzie pleaded guilty to vehicular assault in a plea bargain with prosecutors who dismissed drug charges against the 32-year-old.

The Yakima Herald-Republic reports ( http://bit.ly/16pEGJT) the boys - 10-year-old Chris Sanchez and his 11-year-old brother Israel - are recovering from broken bones they suffered in the October accident just outside their home.
