State Patrol seeks assistance in locating hit and run vehicle

The Minnesota State patrol is asking for the public’s help in locating a vehicle that fled the scene of a fatal crash Saturday, Aug. 24.

The crash occurred about 9:45 p.m., on U.S. Highway 71, just north of Sauk Centre.

A northbound motorcycle’s passenger fell off the motorcycle near the entrance to the Grey Stone Golf Course. The male was then subsequently struck by a passing motorist traveling north bound on Hwy. 71. The driver of the striking vehicle did not stop at the scene of the crash.

The Minnesota State Patrol is asking for the public’s help in locating the vehicle that had fled the scene of the crash. It is believed that the suspected vehicle sustained damage to the front bumper area. Debris from the scene suggests a Buick Regal as the suspected vehicle.

Anyone with any information that would help the investigation, is asked to contact the Minnesota State Patrol St. Cloud District Office at (320) 223-6666.
