Police searching for hit-and-run driver wanted in homeless woman's death


St. Paul Police want to know who fatally struck a local homeless woman in a hit-and-run.

In a Facebook post appealing to the public for help finding the driver, police say the vehicle is a "grey, four-door sedan" that was seen on University Avenue head toward Dale Street, where it apparently took a left-hand turn.

The victim was struck near the intersection of University and Mackubin Street at about 9:45 p.m Tuesday.

The Pioneer Press says it all started when bystanders noticed the woman, identified as 49-year-old Antoinette Boxer, apparently unconscious on the road. They came to her aid and tried to keep traffic from hitting her, the paper says, but the suspected vehicle seemed to not heed them and hit Boxer before driving off.

FOX 9 reports she was staying at the Emma Norman Residence for women and families at the time of her death.

The station says she "frequently walked" along the road where she was struck.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact police at 651-266-5798
