MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) –Authorities in Alexandria have seized a vehicle in connection to a hit-and-run last week that left a 26-year-old man dead.
The Alexandria Police Department says a tip called in Sunday led investigators to a dark-colored SUV that matched the suspect vehicle in video footage.
The seized vehicle has front-end damage consistent with a hit-and-run, police say. The vehicle is currently undergoing a complete examination at the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension laboratory in St. Paul.
The fatal hit-and-run happened on the night of Feb. 19. Travis Penning was found on the side of 34th Avenue, suffering from significant injuries. Emergency crews brought him to a hospital, where he later died.
No arrests have been made. Anyone with information on the hit-and-run is asked to call Alexandria police at 320-763-6631.
