Man Charged In Minneapolis Fatal Hit-And-Run

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A man has been charged with two counts of criminal vehicular homicide in a hit-and-run that killed a bicyclist in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis.

Twenty-four-year-old Abdirahman Abdi Ali was charged Tuesday in the death of 24-year-old Jessica Hanson, who was from the west-central Minnesota city of Hoffman. She’d been working as a server at a Minneapolis restaurant.

Witnesses told police the car that hit Hanson last Wednesday failed to stop at a stop sign before striking her. Witnesses say the headlights were off and the car was speeding.

According to the charges, Ali told police someone was shooting at his car, so he took off and didn’t know what or who he hit. He was driving on a canceled license.

Each count carries up to 10 years in prison.
