A pedestrian has died in a hit-and-run crash in Becker County, Minnesota.
The Becker County Sheriff's Office reports that 21-year-old Joshua Charles Jones, of Ponsford, died at the scene following the incident at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
The driver fled the scene, but police found the vehicle involved later Thursday evening at a home in Pine Point.
Three men were taken into custody, but only one of them remains in custody with the other two released pending further investigation.
A 47-year-old man from Ponsford is awaiting formal charges.
Pedestrian deaths fell last year
2017 was a safer year on the roads in Minnesota for pedestrians and, in fact, all road users.
The 38 pedestrian deaths last year was a huge drop from 2016, when 60 pedestrians were killed.
That was the highest number seen in the state since 1991.
