A 20-year-old St. Paul woman has been arrested in connection to a fatal hit-and-run in north Minneapolis Friday night.
The victim, identified by family to KSTP-TV as 23-year-old Kevin Dodge-Fjelbroten, was struck by a silver Ford Taurus at 10:24 p.m. in the area of the 2500 block of West Broadway Avenue.
Dodge-Fjelbroten was found lying in the roadway, with the striking vehicle further down the roadway. The car was stopped and abandoned – and heavily damaged.
Dodge-Fjelbroten was transported to North Memorial Medical Center and died shortly after arriving, according to Minneapolis police.
On Sunday, homicide detectives interviewed a person of interest and ultimately arrested that person – a 20-year-old St. Paul woman, who is being held in the Hennepin County Adult Detention Center for probable cause criminal vehicular homicide.
