Pedestrian Killed While Standing On A Twin Cities Highway
Roseville, MN (KROC AM News) - The driver of a car that crashed in the Twin Cities early Thursday was killed moments later after being hit by another vehicle.
The Minnesota State Patrol says the victim had been driving “at a high rate of speed” when the vehicle crashed into the median guardrail.
The State Patrol says the driver “was standing in the middle of the roadway” when a passing motorist stopped on the right shoulder to check on the victim. Another vehicle moved to the left lane while approaching the accident scene and its driver apparently did not see the victim who was still standing on the roadway.
The victim was a 25-year-old Minneapolis man whose name was withheld.
The deadly incident happened around 3:00 am on Highway 36 in Roseville.
