Charges: Hit-and-run suspect's car called 911 after fatal crash

The suspect initially said her car was stolen, and then admitted she was involved in the crash and fled.
AISSATA DORE

A 20-year-old woman has been charged in connection to a fatal hit-and-run that killed a pedestrian in Minneapolis last week. 

Aissata Dore, of St. Paul, is charged with criminal vehicular homicide in connection to the May 28 crash that killed 23-year-old Kevin Dodge-Fjelbroten in north Minneapolis. 

According to the criminal complaint, police responded to Broadway Avenue West and 26th Avenue North, where they found Dodge-Fjelbroten lying in the street. He was brought to the hospital, where he was declared dead. 

About 15 feet from Dodge-Fjelbroten was a silver Ford Taurus with heavy front-end damage. Witnesses told police they saw two women run from the vehicle after they hit the victim, charges say. 

The vehicle was registered to Dore and her phone, which was synched to her car, automatically called 911 after the crash. The 911 operator could hear the two women talking outside the car before the line went dead, but the operator noted they didn't attempt to report the crash. 

The complaint says Dore initially said her car and phone were stolen the night before the crash, but after missing several meetings with investigators about her car, she admitted to police she was driving and fled the scene. 

Charges note Dore was traveling at speeds "far above" the other cars in the vicinity prior to the crash.
