Three Pedestrian-Vehicle Fatalities in 4 Days
Undated (KROC-AM News) - There have been three fatal traffic incidents involving pedestrians in Minnesota since Saturday night, when a 5-year-old boy was struck by a car while trick-or-treating in Minneapolis.
The most recent death occurred early Tuesday in east-central Minnesota where 35-year-old Tina Rushmeyer of Rush City was hit by a semi-truck on I-35 near Willow River.
The other fatality was a hit-and-run. The victim, 54-year-old Patricia Wolter of Princeton, was a passenger in a car that was involved in a minor traffic crash Monday night near Cambridge and was struck by another vehicle when she got out of the car.
The driver of the vehicle that hit her did not stop, but the State Patrol says investigators have identified and are questioning the suspected hit-and-run driver.
