According to a complaint, 27-year-old Teisha Randle of St. Paul was the driver of car traveling 90 miles an hour in downtown Minneapolis before allegedly hitting 20-year-old Austin R. Conley in a crosswalk near the corner of 3rd Street and 1st Avenue.

The Star Tribune says Randle does not have a license and told police she thought someone had thrown a rock at her windshield.
