Man Walking Along Northern Minnesota Road Killed by SUV
RICE LAKE (AP) - A northern Minnesota sheriff's office says a man walking along a rural road was struck and killed by an SUV that drove away from the scene.
The Clearwater County Sheriff's Office says 35-year-old Russell M. Auginaush of Naytahwaush was hit by the SUV around 2:30 p.m. Sunday near the community of Rice Lake. The SUV drove off as Auginaush died in a ditch.
