A 77-year-old man died after being hit by a car while walking his dog last week.
Harvey Hanson, of Faribault, died early Friday, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's office says.
The Faribault Police Department is investigating the incident. Criminal charges could be filed, the Faribault Daily News reports.
Hanson was walking his dog not far from his home when he was struck by a 79-year-old driver as he was crossing the street, the newspaper says. The driver was not injured and alcohol isn't believed to be a factor in the crash.
His dog was uninjured and ran home following the crash, the Star Tribune says.
According to his obituary, Hanson was a lifelong resident of Faribault, graduating from Faribault High School in 1955. He was a member of the Army Reserves and started his own trucking company in the 1950s, hauling grain, feed and milk in the region.
