MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Minneapolis man has pleaded guilty to driving drunk and causing a crash that killed two people in Brooklyn Center, according to the Dakota County Attorney’s Office.

At the Hennepin County District Court Tuesday, 21-year-old Yeng Vue pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal vehicular homicide.

On March 5, 2011, Brooklyn Center Police responded to a car crash on the intersection of 57th Avenue North and Highway 100. When they arrived, a 2005 Toyota Camry and a 1996 Geo Prism were found on the median.

Both occupants of the Geo Prism were declared dead at the scene.

Authorities learned that prior to the crash Vue and his cousin were drinking beer and hard liquor at a friend’s house.

Vue, whose license was revoked, was driving his cousin’s uninsured car to Brooklyn Center at the time of the crash. Vue apparently drove the Camry through a red light at a high rate of speed, crashing into the Prism.

Vue’s blood alcohol level was .22 at the time of the crash.

“This is another sad and tragic example of the extreme danger associated with drunk driving,” said Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom.

Vue’s sentencing is set for Oct. 14, 2011.

    Say….you know that .22 is for wussies……Good Lord Mrs Senser was probally a .33. But she hit tissue and continued….this young man hit metal and stopped…..he should have ran off….lawyered up…..hid out at home while the police investigated the wreck and him…..then turned himself in weeks later….

      You are absolutely right about that. This guy went straight to jail that night. It is pretty obvious from his mug shot. It is complete BS that the police are scared of people with money. This guy will probably do at least 5 years in prison, while Mrs Senser will get a fine and probation.

      Wow .22 is for wussies, 3 times the legal limit, Kevin maybe for lifetime loser alcoholics like you it isn’t, but for an average successful person .22 is quite smashed, I’d hardly say he stopped on purpose he was in a high speed collision, then fled the scene on foot but later returned. You’re the equvilant of a tree stump.
