Alcohol was a factor in a north Minneapolis collision that killed a woman Friday night, police say.
A 28-year-old driver was arrested after he struck another car, fled the scene and returned.
The crash happened about 6:10 p.m. at Newton and 29th avenues N., police spokesman Corey Schmidt said in a prepared statement.
The woman was driving east on 29th Avenue N. when she was struck by the man’s vehicle, which was going south on Newton, Schmidt said. The woman’s vehicle then hit a tree, while the man’s hit a parked car.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics. Her name and the cause of her death will be released by the Hennepin County medical examiner’s office.
The suspect was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center for treatment, Schmidt said, adding that officers obtained a search warrant for a blood test.
The crash was being investigated by the Minneapolis police homicide and traffic investigation units.
