Suspected Drunken Driver Hits Idled Car, 1 Killed
MENDOTA HEIGHTS, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota State Patrol says a fatal crash along a Twin Cities interstate shows why no one should risk driving after drinking.
The patrol says a 49-year-old Lakeville woman struck a stalled car along I-35E in Mendota Heights around 1 a.m. Friday. A man behind the wheel of the stalled car was killed. The patrol identifies him as 50-year-old Tijuan Moore of St. Paul. A passenger in the disabled car was injured.
The patrol says the woman who struck the stalled car is suspected of driving drunk.
State Patrol Capt. Matt Langer says the crash shows why the patrol has made DWI enforcement a top priority.
