ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – Authorities say a St. Paul man died Thursday night from injuries suffered after his girlfriend struck him with her vehicle Wednesday evening.
Police responded to the 600 block of Wells Street at about 10:45 p.m. Wednesday on a report of a man found lying in the middle of the street. When authorities arrived, they found him unresponsive. The man was later identified as Mark Leroy Urang.
Urang was transported to Regions Hospital, where he died at about 8 p.m. Thursday. Authorities say Urang had been in some sort of argument with his girlfriend, Arlene Garcia, and actually called 911 before he was run down.
Police say both Urang and Garcia appeared to be drinking at the time of the dispute. Garcia is now charged with two counts of criminal vehicular homicide.
Police said Garcia is being held at the Ramsey County Jail. The incident is still under investigation.
