Police Looking For Driver After Man Hit, Injured In Mpls

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Minneapolis Police are searching for a driver they suspect was involved in an accident with a bicycle Saturday morning.

The incident happened just before 11 a.m. at the intersection of Franklin Avenue and West River Parkway, according to police.

Authorities said a truck was driving northbound when it struck a 61-year-old man on a bicycle who was attempting to cross the street on West River Parkway. The truck is described as a smaller brown pick-up truck with home camouflage on it. It also has a red star on the back with “M16” or “M18” on the tailgate. The vehicle should also have front-end damage.

The victim, whose name has not yet been released, died at Hennepin County Medical Center at approximately 2:30 p.m.

No arrests have been made and the incident is still under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call Minneapolis Police.

  • Kevin

    Well if his/her name is not Senser….he will be locked up when he is found…..and charged with in an hour……the trial will take a day and he/she will get the max sentence and will be in prison minutes after the trial……..oh….to be the family of a rich POS…..

    • Molly

      You are right on Kevin!!!, I was thinking the exact same thing. When the authorites find this person yes he/she will be thrown in jail immediatetly, short appreance before a judge and off to prison he will go. Its so appauling that Amy Sensor, b/c of her money & husbands fame gets a free pass….and she not only hit & ran but killed a person. no justice for that young man, or his fam. very tragic & criminal of our justice system.

  • TL the alligator

    this is Mpls, the city of double standards, self serving prosecutors, corrupt police, an incompetent imbecile of a mayor, a derelict judge (Anderson), high property tax, $60,000 water fountains, sanctuary city to illegal aliens, home to thousands of Somalians who hate us and our ways, and generous welfare benefits that encourage laziness and dysfunction……no, really, its a wonderful place.

  • Friend of the Victim

    No thoughts about the victim or his family/friends? Really? Just commentaries on your views of Mpls? Try knowing the victim for a moment, there is the real tragedy…

    • Deep Thinker

      I’ve said it a million times already, if you are really a friend of the victim don’t you have more important things to worry about than what people post on WCCO?

      • @ NOT such a 'Deep Thinker'

        I’ve said it a million times already. If you were sympathetic, empathetic and not just concerned about YOURSELF and your little bubble you live in, you would be posting kind words of support, to any family and friends of this victim that may be reading about their loved ones, and this tragic death.

        Unfortunately you choose to spew negativity and insult…don’t YOU have more important things to do…’Deep Thinker’??

        Praying for the family involved in this terrible tragedy. Praying also they find the person responsible for this death.

          • @still NOT a 'Deep Thinker'

            Wrong again…not a friend…don’t even know who they are…just someone who can think beyond THEMSELF…(which obviously is beyond YOUR “Deep Thinking” capacity to understand).

        • I Calls Them As I Sees Them

          @ NOT such a ‘Deep Thinker’ I agree with Deep Thinker, people like you seem to think that your feelings over what happened are more important than the people actually affected…quit being such a selfish phony

          • @shallow thinker

            My comment has nothing whatsoever to do with my feelings…continuing to pray for this family…nothing selfish about that.

            Hey shallow, you and deep thinker must be related?

            Low IQ tells me it must be so………………………

  • Billy

    If I see a truck with “home camouflage: on it, I will be sure to report it.

  • TL the alligator

    …just sayin that the victim should at least get justice….but dont count on it…not equal justice anyway…….because THAT is a rarity in hennepin county and Mpls.
