MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Minnesota State Patrol is investigating how a man was killed near the Riverside Avenue on-ramp to westbound Interstate 94.

Lt. Eric Roeske said 19-year-old Jason Stevens was found injured on the road around 12:18 a.m Wednesday.

They believe Stevens was struck by a vehicle, but they aren’t sure if he was trying to cross the highway or was lying in the road.

He was brought to the Hennepin County Medical Center for life-threatening injuries, but later died.

Jeff Milton, a witness who lives nearby said he heard a pop and then saw a car slowly drive away.

“The guy was laying there. It was a head injury … it was a young guy and that’s always scary. I thought maybe it was a motorcycle accident or something like that. He had a backpack … so I don’t know maybe trying to cross the highway, maybe just on the highway or whatever,” said Milton.

The state patrol is investigating.

Stevens is from Rochester, Minn. He is listed as a pedestrian in the state patrol’s incident report.
