According to Minneapolis police, the crash happened at 5:42 p.m. when the driver of a "suspect vehicle" was ran a red light at Marquette Avenue and 10th Street South and collided with another vehicle, causing it to "spin around and strike the two victims."

Both men were badly injured, with the most seriously injured victim dying shortly after being transported to Hennepin County Medical Center. The other victim was hospitalized at HCMC in critical condition but is expected to survive, according to police. 

"The driver of the suspect vehicle is believed to be in his 20s and showed signs of possible impairment," a release from MPD says. Neither driver was injured.

Police continue to investigate the incident.
