A Yakima man accused of running over two boys pleads not guilty in Yakima court today.

32-year old Benjamin McKenzie is charged with two counts of vehicular assault after hitting 11 year old Israel Sanchez and his brother, 10 year old Christopher Sanchez.

Police say McKenzie was driving the car while under the influence of a controlled substance.

Both boys were treated at the hospital, and are now recovering at home.

McKenzie will be back in court in about a month.
