Hit-and-run injures three University students

A car going the wrong way hit three University of Minnesota students early Friday, leaving one in critical condition and the other two injured, before taking off according to the Star Tribune.

The Minnesota Daily reported that Joe Bailin, Katelynn Hanson and Sarah Bagley were out celebrating their acceptance into graduate school before the car knocked into Hanson and Bagley.

Hanson's mother told the Minnesota Daily that the car then continued down the block and smashed Benjamin Van Handel, who is a University senior, into a telephone pole.

All three victims were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, a spokesperson told the Star Tribune, where Van Handel was in critical condition and Bagley in satisfactory. Hanson was released.

The Star Tribune said that police are searching for the car that fled the scene, which a witness said is a white four-door Toyota Camry or Salary with front-end damage.
