A 60-year-old pedestrian was killed in a hit-and-run incident in St. Paul Sunday evening.

Police were sent to Phalen Boulevard and Atlantic Street at 9 p.m. Sunday to find Lor Xiong, of St. Paul, laying in the intersection with significant head injuries.

Xiong was pronounced dead by paramedics at the scene.

Witnesses gave police the license plate and description of the vehicle involved, which was found a short time later at the 300 block of Toronto Street, with officers observing damage to its front and driver's side.

A St. Anthony man was taken into custody and is being held on pending charges of criminal vehicular homicide.

St. Paul PD says the crash remains under investigation, and it's unclear at this stage if drugs or alcohol played a role in the incident.
