MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — One man is dead and another critically injured after police say they were both hit by a car involved in a crash in downtown Minneapolis.
According to the Minneapolis Police Department, a driver heading north on Marquette Avenue ran a red light at 10th Street and hit a driver going east at about 5:42 p.m. Monday. The victim’s vehicle spun, hitting the two men who were walking in the intersection’s northeast corner, and launching them into a nearby business’s plate glass window.
Both pedestrians were taken to Hennepin Healthcare, where one later died. His identity will be released at a later date by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Neither of the drivers, both believed to be in their 20s, were hurt. Police say the driver who ran the light showed “signs of possible impairment.”
