Surveillance photo shows suspect in St. Paul hit-and-run case

Police are asking the public for help identifying the man.
St. Paul hit and run

As a hit-and-run victim fights for her life in the hospital, St. Paul police are hoping a surveillance photo can help identify the driver suspected of leaving her at the scene. 

The woman, identified by family as 57-year-old Carolyn Edwards, was struck on the 800 block of Rice Street on Tuesday, Dec. 1. 

According to a press release, the driver of the suspect vehicle — an early 2000s Dodge Caravan — got out after the impact, checked on the woman and drove away:

The police department says the van sustained some damage to the driver's side of the windshield, and has a missing hubcap and a damaged bumper as well.

The suspect is Black, "believed to be middle-aged and under six feet tall," the release notes. He was wearing a "flat cap and dark-rimmed glasses" at the time of the incident.

"Carolyn is still fighting for her life," the release says; with KSTP reporting she suffered a brain bleed, a pelvic fracture and other internal injuries.

Anyone with information that could help identify the suspect is urged to call investigators at 651-266-5721.
