Police say they are investigating a fiery late-night wreck over the weekend in Minneapolis that left a 20-year-old man dead, another man critically injured and two other people who were with them unaccounted for. Authorities are considering the crash a possible hit-and-run.

The wreck occurred shortly after 12:30 a.m. Sunday near S. Hiawatha Avenue and E. 41st Street, said Police Sgt. Garrett Parten. Officers arrived to find the car engulfed in flames.

Cole J. Thompson of Blaine was taken to HCMC and died there, police said. Police are withholding the name of the critically injured man, who also was taken to HCMC.

A man and a woman in the vehicle fled the scene and have not been located by police, Parten said. No arrests have been made.

Police said they are trying to determine whether any other vehicles were involved in what they are classifying as a case of criminal vehicular homicide.

According to police records, a domestic assault in a vehicle, which occurred about an hour earlier, is related to the crash. Parten said he did not have further details about the connection between the two incidents. An ambulance took a victim of the assault to HCMC for treatment of minor injuries, records indicated.
