A University of Minnesota undergraduate student was killed in a collision with a semi-truck in the Dinkytown neighborhood on Thursday morning, Pioneer Press said.
Kimberly Yeong Sil Hull, 25, was traveling to campus as she entered the intersection of Fourth Street and 15th Avenue Southeast, according to police. The truck driver hit her while taking a right onto Fourth Street, The Minnesota Daily said.
Minneapolis police Sgt. Steve McCarty told The Minnesota Daily that traffic accident investigators are doing preliminary work to determine the speed of the semi-truck.
Within the last week in Minneapolis, this is the third deadly crash involving pedestrians or bicyclists, according to Pioneer Press.
Hull is remembered by friends for her spunk, upbeat personality and passion for filmmaking. She was planning to graduate in two weeks, The Minnesota Daily said.
