St. Paul police say they’re searching for the driver of a stolen vehicle that took off after hitting a man in the city’s Como Park neighborhood on Tuesday.
According to police, officers were called to the intersection of Rose Avenue and Como Boulevard East for a report of a crash with injuries, but when they arrived, they found a driver had hit a man who was rollerblading on Como Boulevard, and then left the scene.
The man who was hit was taken to Regions Hospital for injuries that police say are non-life-threatening.
Police add that so far, they believe the vehicle was moving at “a high rate of speed.”
Early Wednesday afternoon, police said they are searching for a white or light-colored sports utility vehicle with a Minnesota license plate of LBM915, and there may be multiple, colored stickers on the vehicle. They add the vehicle was stolen out of Centennial Lakes.
