Three U students injured in a Dinkytown hit and run

An unidentified driver hit three University students walking on a Dinkytown sidewalk and immediately fled the scene at nearly 2 a.m.

Katelynn Hanson, 21; Sarah Bagley, 21; and Benjamin Van Handel, 23, were all sent to the Hennepin County Medical Center after the hit and run, with Van Handel still in critical condition, said the Star Tribune.

Hanson, her boyfriend Joe Bailin, and their friend Bagley were walking from the Kitty Cat Klub celebrating their acceptance into graduate school when they saw the headlights of the car going the wrong way on Fifth Street Southeast before they all hit the ground, according to the Minnesota Daily.

The car drove further down the block and hit Van Handel into a telephone pole, causing him a severe brain injury and multiple broken bones. Hanson was released from the hospital with bruised legs and soreness, while Bagley was in satisfactory condition with a concussion, knee and elbow injuries, and a chipped tooth.

Police searched on Friday for an early 2000s, white, Toyota Camry or Solera with front end damage.
