On Thursday morning around 8 a.m. Kimberly Yeong Sil Hull, 25, was struck and killed on the intersection of 15th Avenue and Forth Street in Dinkytown, reports The Minnesota Daily. The truck driver that hit Hull remained at the site for hours after and was very cooperative with police. The man was not arrested, as reported by the Minnesota Daily.
Hull was on her way to her job at the University of Minnesota's Rarig Center when the accident happened, reports The Star Tribune. Hull was a senior at the University of Minnesota, and was scheduled to graduate in two weeks, said the Star Tribune.
Police said that the warm weather is bringing out more cyclists who aren't used to being as vigilant about their surroundings, said The Republic. Minneapolis police are urging everyone to use caution near the University of Minnesota, where 3 other traffic/pedestrian accidents have occurred in the last week, reports The Republic.
