Man charged for hit-and-run in Rochester

Christopher Allen Trautman faces 14 criminal charges after two hit-and-run crashes in Rochester Saturday. One pedestrian was killed and three others were injured.
Trautman had a blood-alcohol content of 0.18 percent and was driving 20 mph over the speed limit, a prosecutor told the Star Tribune Monday.
Trautman could face 11 felony charges and three gross misdemeanors. The maximum fine could be up to $137,000 and 55 years in prison, the Minnesota Daily said.
Trautman ran a red light early Saturday and struck two pedestrians. He then drove away and hit two more pedestrians and hit a light pole.
One pedestrian, Austin John Melville, later died at a local hospital.
