Officials seeking information on car that may be connected to fatal hit-and-run


The Minnesota State Patrol is hoping to speak to the driver of a vehicle that was traveling in the area of a fatal hit-and-run on Sunday morning.

The State Patrol is seeking information about a 2010 t0 2012 Ford Fusion or Mercury Milan that was traveling on Highway 169 between 4:30 a.m. and 5 a.m. Sunday, according to a post on the agency's Facebook page.

Officials want to speak to the driver and any occupants of the vehicle.

The vehicle was traveling down the highway around the time 29-year-old Derek Fath was fatally hit by a vehicle near the intersection of northbound Highway 169 and Belle Plaine Trail.

WCCO says Fath was walking home from a friend's house when he was hit. He and his girlfriend have a son who is about to turn 2 years old, the news station says.

There is a GoFundMe Page set up for Fath's memorial service – it had raised more than $10,000 of its $15,000 goal in the first day.

Anyone who may have been involved or witnessed the hit-and-run is asked to contact the State Patrol at 651-582-1503.
