Minnesota police investigating fatal auto-pedestrian accident

On Behalf of | Aug 19, 2021 | DWI

Police investigators in Minnesota are currently investigating an auto-pedestrian incident that claimed a womans life. This accident occurred on Aug. 14, near the University of Minnesota soccer facility. It is unclear if the driver believed responsible has been officially charged.

What happened?

According to reports, a 29-year-old female was walking to the soccer facility to meet her significant other when a passing truck struck a parked car and then her. The driver of the truck is said to have then made a U-turn and hit her again while trying to get to Cleveland Avenue. The victim survived the incident and was taken to Regions Hospital for treatment, but sadly, she later succumbed to her injuries.

The driver

Investigators have not released the identity of the driver believed responsible for this collision. This individual was transported to a nearby hospital for toxicology testing — which is pretty standard following a fatal accident. The results of those tests have not been reported to the public. Law enforcement authorities have yet to say whether charges are pending in this case.

Criminal defense

If charges are filed against the driver believed responsible for this fatal auto-pedestrian accident, he or she is looking at some serious consequences if ultimately convicted. Thankfully, this individual does have the right to a criminal defense should things come to that. An experienced criminal defense attorney will be able to help this person navigate the Minnesota criminal justice system, answer questions, ask questions, fight the charges or seek alternative sentencing, all to help this individual achieve the best possible outcome.
