Woman dies in Roseville car accident
An unidentified woman is dead after the car she was riding in was struck by a man evading police, according to a Star Tribune article published Sunday.
An article published in Sunday’s Pioneer Press said Tito Fonzio Campbell, 33, of Roseville, crashed a stolen car into the woman’s car on Highway 36 around 7 p.m. Saturday night. A man riding with the woman was taken to the hospital in “serious condition” while an 8-year-old boy riding with Campbell was also taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The more thorough Pioneer Press article said police were called to the 600 block of West Highway 36, where police say Campbell assaulted a female victim in order to steal her car.
Police discontinued the pursuit when Campbell displayed aggressive driving behavior but continued to follow the car at a distance. When Campbell was involved in the accident, police were directed to the scene by a witness, according to the Pioneer Press.
The Star Tribune said police are withholding the all names of the involved at this time while the Pioneer Press published Campbell’s name as well as his lengthy criminal history.
He is currently being held on suspicion of criminal vehicular homicide.
