Another pedestrian has been killed on Twin Cities roads, this time in St. Paul Park.

It happened in St. Paul Park, with the victim a 49-year-old Roseville man, Phillip Lewis Cain, who was walking at Hastings and Lincoln avenues around 3:40 a.m.

He was then struck by a Ford Taurus, the driver of which turned around and returned to the scene.

The car following behind the Taurus though, a Saab, left the scene, with the driver of that car later taken into custody by police.

Cain was pronounced dead at the scene. Neither driver was injured in the collision.
