State patrol car strikes a pedestrian crossing the road in St. Paul


A pedestrian was injured after he was struck by a police car in St. Paul in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The 22-year-old Minneapolis man was hit by a Minnesota State Patrol car at 2.42 a.m. at the intersection of Dale Street and St. Anthony Avenue, WCCO reports.

The pedestrian has been named as Quincy Courts, and the Pioneer Press reports that he was in a crosswalk at the time of the incident.

The state patrol car, the newspaper notes, was being driven by 28-year-old Trooper Peter J. Schultz, who had been driving northbound on Dale Street and was turning left onto St. Anthony Avenue.

According to the Star Tribune, Courts was in the crosswalk as the light turned green, and Schultz didn't see him as he was making his turn.

Courts has injuries that are not considered life-threatening, while Schultz was not injured.
