Authorities have released the name of the man killed in a crash in North Minneapolis Wednesday.
Fifty-year-old Jose Angel Madrid Salcido was killed when a driver fleeing authorities struck his vehicle in the area of Aldrich Avenue North and 36th Street.
Madrid Salcido's wife said the family depended on him and that "we still can't believe this happened to us. My husband was an exceptional man, a role model."
Police said 27-year-old Trevon McMorris nearly ran into an officer before striking Madrid Salcido's car after authorities responded to a suspicious vehicle report in the area.
McMorris is currently in jail and facing a murder charge.
According to court records, McMorris has a history of traffic violations, including past convictions for driving with a suspended or revoked license and driving without proof of insurance. McMorris was also convicted after officers found he was in possession of marijuana during a traffic stop.
