Man charged in crash that killed three
The suspect in a crash that killed a mom and her two sons Sunday faces three felony counts of criminal vehicular homicide. Rufus Onel Victor, 29, of Bloomington, faces the charges for the crash that killed Amanda Jean Thomas, 29, of Fridley, and her sons, Andre Alexanader Lee Mack Jr., 12, and Akeron Jason Lamar Thomas, 3 months. Thomas and her sons were killed when a man driving a stolen car ran a red light while fleeing a state trooper and hitting Thomas' vehicle, the Star Tribune said. "I don't deserve anything good to happen to me," Victor told officers. "I did it and I tried to lie my way out of it." If convicted, Victor faces a maximum of 40 years in prison and/or a fine of $80,000 for each fleeing count, the Pioneer Press said.
