Child dies after being struck by vehicle in Roseville

Roseville police say the 3-year-old girl and a 47-year-old man were crossing Larpenteur Avenue around 8:30 p.m. when they were hit by an elderly driver.

ROSEVILLE, Minn. — A 3-year-old girl is dead and a man who was with her is hospitalized in critical condition after they were struck while crossing a busy road in Roseville Wednesday night. 

Roseville police confirm the two pedestrians were trying to cross Larpenteur Avenue near Galtier Street around 8:30 p.m. when they were hit by a 75-year-old motorist headed westbound. 

Authorities say both the child and the adult suffered critical injuries in the incident. Officers performed lifesaving measures until paramedics arrived and rushed the victims to the hospital. Unfortunately, the little girl did not survive. 

Police said in a news release Thursday morning that the elderly female driver pulled over immediately after hitting the pedestrians and is cooperating with investigators. Responding officers say they saw no signs of impairment. 

The Minnesota State Patrol and Roseville investigators worked through the night reconstructing the crash scene and gathering evidence. There is no word at this time whether criminal charges might be filed.
