EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (WCCO) – An Eden Prairie man was arrested Friday and charged with three counts of criminal vehicular homicide in connection with a fatal crash in August.
According to the Hennepin County Attorney’s office, 46-year-old Randoll Guy Sloan was arrested on a criminal warrant for driving while under the influence of alcohol, having a blood-alcohol concentration greater than .08 and for driving in a “grossly negligent manner.”
The complaint says on Aug. 1, Sloan was driving a Chevrolet Corvette with passenger Kyle Boline on Eden Prairie Road. At around 7:45 p.m., the Corvette didn’t take a curve and ended up striking a power pole.
The car flipped, and both passengers were ejected. Boline died to hours later at Hennepin County medical Center. Sloan was treated for a broken leg and “significant cuts to the head,” according to the criminal complaint.
Boline’s father told WCCO that Sloan was Boline’s uncle.
A witness says the Corvette was traveling at high speed when it passed him while traveling south on Eden Prairie Road. The witness later discovered the car after it had flipped.
Two other witness say the two men were at the Gold Nugget Tavern at 14401 Excelsior Blvd in Minnetonka, and left in a Corvette with Sloan in the driver’s seat.
The complaint states that DNA evidence processed by the Hennepin County Sheriff’s office confirmed Sloan was the driver, and a blood test showed that his blood-alcohol level was .19 – more than twice the legal limit.
