Woman dies after fleeing suspect hits her car
A woman was killed and two others were injured after a collision Saturday night between a suspect fleeing Roseville police and the woman on Saturday night.
Shoua Vang, 48, was pronounced dead at Regions Hospital after Tito Fonzio Campbell, 33, left Interstate 35E in a stolen Chrysler and crashed into her car near Larpenteur Avenue in St. Paul, according to the Pioneer Press.
Vang's son declined to comment, according to the Star Tribune.
The incident began after Roseville police responded to a report of a stolen vehicle near Highway 36, the Star Tribune reported. After chasing Campbell eastbound on the highway, police stopped because the suspect passed other cars in "a dangerous manner by using the right shoulder of the highway." Campbell was not being pursued by the police when he crashed into Vang.
Campbell was arrested on the scene of the accident, Roseville police told the Pioneer Press. He is being held on suspicion of criminal vehicular homicide.
Police also told the Pioneer Press that there was an eight-year-old boy in the suspect's car that was hospitalized at Region's with non-life threatening injuries, but his relationship with the suspect is unknown. The man in Vang's car was hospitalized at Region's in serious condition.
Campbell was taken to Region's hospital for a blood-alcohol draw, according to the Pioneer Press. His blood alcohol level was not released.
