Woman Charged in Minneapolis Fatal hit-and-run
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A 27-year-old woman has been charged in a hit-and-run that killed a college freshman in Minneapolis.
Teisha Yovonne Randle faces two counts of criminal vehicular homicide in the death of 20-year-old Austin Conley.
The criminal complaint says Randle told officers she had been at a bar in Minneapolis and was driving in the area where Conley was hit early Saturday when she heard a crash and her windshield “exploded.” She said she thought someone threw a rock.
She claimed she drove to a nearby interstate exit, left her car and called her boyfriend. The complaint says her car was not there, but was “hidden” in her garage. It had extensive damage.
It was not immediately clear if Randle had an attorney. She is in custody.
Conley attended Augsburg College.
