The 17-year-old boy from Nowthen who died Friday when he was struck by a hit-and-run driver in Andover was identified Saturday as Tristan Gene Robinson.
No arrests have been reported linked to the crash, which happened at 6:20 p.m. Friday in the 700 block of 141st Avenue NW., according to Anoka County Sheriff’s Cmdr. Paul Sommer.
Officers were called to the scene on a report of a juvenile male down in the street. The teen had been with friends at a nearby home and had just left when his friends heard “a dull collision sound followed by screeching tires,” Sommer said. They ran outside and found Robinson fatally injured, but were not in time to see the vehicle.
Robinson victim died at the scene.
The Sheriff’s Office has urged anyone with knowledge of the incident to call 763-427-1212.
