St. Paul Police: Hit and run may have been intentional


A man is in critical condition after a hit-and-run accident that police say may have been intentional, according to media reports.

Police said the victim was hit by a vehicle driven by a 36-year-old woman around 5 p.m. Saturday at 7th and Mercer Streets in St. Paul, KSTP says.

The two had a dispute before the accident, St. Paul Police Cmdr. Mary Nash said, and it appeared the man "may have been intentionally run over," according to the Pioneer Press.

"I wouldn't call it a domestic situation ... The two were known well to each other. Alcohol was a factor," police spokesman Howie Padilla told KARE 11.

The victim, 25, is in critical condition at Regions Hospital, WCCO says.
