Charges filed in Hennepin County have revealed more details about a rollover crash in Minneapolis last month that left one dead and another seriously injured.

Authorities are still searching for Andre Ogburn, 31, aka Dashawn Jones of Minneapolis, who has been on the run since the Sept. 16 crash on the 7th Street North exit ramp.

Ogburn, who was unlicensed because of previous driving crimes, was the alleged driver of an SUV he had borrowed from a friend, which rolled after he apparently swerved to avoid a Metro Mobility bus before striking a tree.

Thrown from the vehicle and fatally injured was 57-year-old passenger Kimel Sykes, of Minneapolis. Another passenger, 37-year-old David Bryant, also of Minneapolis, was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

An already serious incident took a turn when a female driver stopped on the ramp to help upon noticing a body lying in the road.

That body was Sykes', and she observed Bryant lying dead or seriously wounded near the vehicle.

As she got back in her car though, a bloodied Ogburn then got into the front passenger seat next to her, brandishing a gun at her.

"Dan is dead and I don’t want to go down for this," he allegedly said.

He told her to take him to the parking lot of Mickey's Diner in St. Paul, where he got out of the car and walked away into the alley.

Ogburn is described as 5'7", black, bald, and weighing 200-230 pounds.

On his record are felony drug convictions, criminal vehicular operation and fleeing a peace officer.

He has been charged in the latest incident with kidnapping and criminal vehicular homicide-leaving the scene.
