One Killed When Hit and Run Driver Smashes into St. Paul Bus
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — St. Paul police say one person was killed and two people were critically injured after a car sped through a stop sign and struck a Metro Transit bus.
The Star Tribune reports that it happened at about 7:30 p.m. Friday in St. Paul's Frogtown neighborhood.
Police spokesman Steve Linders says a 26-year-old man driving a white sedan ran a stop sign after fleeing the scene of a minor accident, hit a median, went airborne and slammed into the bus, slicing through it.
Police say a 48-year-old man riding the bus was ejected when the vehicle collided with it. He died at the scene.
Another bus passenger, a 19-year-old man, was taken to a hospital with critical injuries. Police say the driver of the car also is in critical condition.
