State Patrol asking for public’s help in locating suspect involved in fatal hit-and-run

The Minnesota State Patrol is asking for the public’s help in finding a vehicle that was involved in a fatal hit-and-run crash in Maplewood earlier this month.

The incident happened on April 2. Troopers are looking for a dark-colored, 2006-2015 Honda Pilot that fled southbound from Highway 120 between 10th and 15th Streets around 9:15 p.m. after hitting and killing a 67-year-old Oakdale woman.

The driver of another vehicle involved in the crash stayed on scene and cooperated with authorities, the State Patrol said. The SUV that fled is said to likely not have any damage to their vehicle as the investigation shows the victim was run over, not hit.

Anyone with information pertaining to this case is encouraged to contact Sgt. Eric Zastrow at 651-539-1149.
