One dead in crash after police pursue street racers

It happened in the early hours of Sunday morning.

A police pursuit of suspected street racers in Eden Prairie ended with a fatal crash in Minnetonka early Sunday morning.

The incident started at 1:41 a.m. near Flying Cloud Drive and Crosstown Circle, after Eden Prairie PD received a 911 call about illegal driving.

Officers arrived to find a street race underway, with all but one driver fleeing when they got to the scene.

Police pursued this remaining vehicle down Hwy. 62, and then onto Baker Road, crossing into Minnetonka.

They lost sight of the vehicle under I-494 but then found it crashed in a yard on the 5300 block of Baker Road.

One man was found dead at the scene, while a woman was taken to a hospital.
