Victim identified in St. Paul fatal hit-and-run


The StarTribune reports that St. Paul police have identified the dead woman as Therese Klotz, 53, of St. Paul.

They continue looking for the hit-and-run driver who struck her in the West End neighborhood Friday night.

The Pioneer Press reports Klotz was struck and killed while dropping off a friend on the 700 block of Randolph Avenue a little before 7 p.m.

 KSTP says she was hit just outside the driver's door by an eastbound vehicle. She died on the way to the hospital.
