Man Fleeing Robber Hit By Car

A homeless man was hit by a car and killed on Thursday morning after fleeing from a robber. A robber approached Zachary Taylor and Taylor's female friend on a corner and started a conversation with the two. The robber then pulled a knife on the two and Taylor ran into the street and was hit by a car. He later died at the Hennepin County Medical Center, according to the Pioneer Press article.

According to the Star Tribune article, the driver who hit Taylor is not expected to be charged.

The Pioneer Press article is a quick article that was added as soon as information was found out on the incident. At the time it was released, Taylor wasn't even identified as the person who was killed. It just gives the most recent facts at the time of its release.

The Star Tribune article is more in-depth. It gives personal information about Taylor and actually got a couple quotes from Taylor's friends about how he was a good guy. The article also went into why Taylor was homeless and other information that intrigued the reader. It made it more of a story out of just one incident.
