Police say a Kennewick woman was involved in two separate hit and run collisions Wednesday afternoon in Wenatchee. Captain Edgar Reinfeld says both accidents were alcohol related. The first one happened around 9 am on Emerson street when 31 year old Amy Whitish crashed her car into a parked vehicle. Reinfeld says a witness got her license plate number when  she drove away from the scene. The same car was involved in a  3-car hit and run accident about 35 minutes later at the Miller and Millerdale intersection.

Reinfeld says Whitish was arrested at the hospital and charged with DUI. Only minor injuries reported.
