One dead after crash with stolen car

A woman was killed in St. Paul Saturday after a man driving a stolen car crashed into her vehicle, police told the Star Tribune.

A man in the woman's vehicle was also seriously injured, and an 8-year-old boy in the car with the suspect was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

The Roseville police arrested the suspect, Tito Fonzio Campbell, 33, of Roseville, at the crash scene, the Pioneer Press reported.

Police received a report that the suspect had stolen a car and proceeded to the scene, where they saw the car, a Chrysler 300M, driving away, the Pioneer Press reported. The police pursued the car until it started driving recklessly at an estimated speed of 90 mph, at which point "the officer immediately discontinued the pursuit due to the suspect's aggressive and dangerous driving," the Roseville police told the Pioneer Press.

The officers continued in the same direction as they had seen the car proceed, and were later stopped by witnesses to the crash. The crash occurred by the Larpenteur exit of Interstate 35E.

The suspect was "only slightly wounded" and was taken to the Regions Hospital for a blood-alcohol draw, police told the Pioneer Press.
