Star Tribune Truck Hit by Drunk Driver
A Star Tribune delivery truck was broadsided by a Geo Prism, that ran a red light, early Monday morning. It happened at Washington Avenue North and 10th Avenue North, just around the corner from the distribution center.
The driver of the Prism tried to flee the scene, but was found and arrested under suspicion of driving under the influence. One person in the car was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center with serious injuries. The truck driver was not injured.
Sgt. Jesse Garcia of the Minneapolis Police Department said, “A drunk driver went through a red light and basically caused this accident.” The driver was identified. “He does have some priors, and he does have some alcohol-related charges on his driving record,” said Garcia. “So, you know, it sounds like someone that has issues with alcohol.”
