Minnetonka police say a texting driver led authorities on a 10-mile chase through the Twin Cities Tuesday afternoon. Police says the driver, who was in what appeared to be a gray sedan with out-of-state registration, fled from officers who were trying to pull them over for texting while driving at about 3 p.m. near Hopkins Crossroad in Minnetonka.
A Minnetonka Police officer collided with another vehicle while on the way to call early Saturday morning. The officer was headed south on Hopkins Crossroad and was making a left turn east to Highway 7 at about midnight, according to police.
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner identified the victim as 58-year-old Katherine Marie Gordon of California. The medical examiner said Gordon died of multiple gunshot wounds.
Police say an officer-involved shooting has closed down westbound Interstate 394 at Hopkins Crossroad.
