TEEN CROSSING STREET HIT BY CAR IN ST. PAUL IN CRITICAL CONDITION
A 14-year-old boy is in critical condition after being hit by a vehicle while walking in St. Paul Sunday evening. The collision occurred about 7:21 p.m. at Cretin and Carroll avenues, said a St. Paul police spokesman. “The driver of the striking vehicle is cooperative and alcohol does not appear to be a factor,” the officer said. According to police: the teenager stepped off a Metro Transit bus and was crossing the street on Cretin in St. Paul when he was struck by a vehicle traveling southbound. Police and fire responded, and transported the boy to Regions Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition, the officer said. Other details are not available because the pedestrian-car collision remains under investigation, he said.
Police on Monday also identified the victim of last week’s fatal pedestrian accident at E. 7th Street and Payne Avenue in St. Paul as Gordon Paul Johnson Jr, 39, of St. Paul. Officers were on patrol when they witnessed a vehicle striking Johnson about 2 a.m. on Nov. 7. One officer rendered aid, while the other pursued and caught up with the driver, a 24-year-old St. Paul man. As of early Monday afternoon, he had not been charged.
