A man charged in a Minneapolis crash that killed one person in May has pleaded not guilty.

Court documents show Trevon Xavier Miguel McMorris, 27, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to one count each of fleeing a peace officer, first-degree sale of drugs and first-degree manufacture of drugs.


Police said officers were dispatched to a report of two suspicious vehicles, possibly engaged in drug activity, near the 3300 block of Aldrich Avenue North in Minneapolis on May 1.

When officers approached, one of the drivers, identifed as McMorris, took off. Police said officers followed the vehicle, and when they arrived near 36th Street and Aldrich Avenue, they found his vehicle had struck another.

The driver of the vehicle McMorris struck was taken to a nearby hospital where he later died. The victim was later identified as Jose Angel Madrid Salcido, 50.

McMorris' trial is scheduled to begin in September.
