Three students injured in Dinkytown hit-and-run

A car hit and injured three University of Minnesota students near Dinkytown early Friday morning, according to The Minnesota Daily.

Near the intersection of Fifth Street and 12th Avenue Southeast, Joe Bailin, his girlfriend Katelynn Hanson and their friend Sarah Bagley were heading west before the wrong-way driver knocked all three to the ground, Minneapolis Sgt. Stephen McCarthy said.

The car continued to travel on the sidewalk and hit Benjamin Van Handel, leaving him in critical condition. He is being treated at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, according to Pioneer Press.

The students were out celebrating their acceptance into graduate architecture school over drinks at the Kitty Cat Klub, The Minnesota Daily said.
