A 33-year-old man was drunk and driving without a license when he ran a red light, collided with another vehicle at a Minneapolis intersection and killed the other motorist, according to charges filed Wednesday.
Terrance J. Bugg, of Minneapolis, was charged Wednesday in Hennepin County District Court with two counts of criminal vehicular homicide in connection with the crash on Sept. 12 that killed Emigdio Gonzalez Tobon, 55, of Minneapolis.
A nationwide warrant was issued for his arrest.
Two women in Bugg's SUV, ages 26 and 35, suffered noncritical injuries.
According to the criminal complaint:
Bugg was speeding in his Honda Pilot while westbound on E. 26th Street about 3:40 a.m., when he went through a red light and broadsided a southbound Chevy Traverse. The impact sent the two SUVs into a building.
An ambulance took Bugg from the scene unconscious and reeking of alcohol. A blood test taken two hours later at HCMC showed that he had a blood alcohol level of 0.15%, nearly twice the legal level for driving in Minnesota.
Bugg was driving even though his license was revoked at the time, the state Department of Public Safety said Wednesday. His criminal history includes a drunken driving conviction in 2014.
