An unlicensed 19-year-old driver was jailed Thursday on suspicion that he ran over and killed someone in Plymouth the night before, then fled the scene.
Jack H. Blaschke, of Delano, was booked into the Hennepin County jail shortly after 4 a.m. on suspicion of criminal vehicular homicide in connection with the collision about 9 p.m. Wednesday at County Road 24 and N. 32nd Avenue, police said.
Police in Golden Valley located the vehicle a few hours after the crash, authorities in Plymouth said. No other details were released about the case, including how Blaschke was found.
Authorities have yet to release any identifying information about the victim. Emergency dispatch audio disclosed that the victim was an "older male" and was in a residential driveway.
Blaschke's license status was "expired" at the time of the collision, according to the state Department of Public Safety.
Court records show he received two speeding tickets last year in Hennepin County about eight weeks apart.
