Minneapolis police arrest driver after fatal hit-and-run

MINNEAPOLIS -- Minneapolis police say an intoxicated driver struck and killed one man, injured another and then plowed into a house porch this morning before continuing to drive away.

Officers arrested the suspected driver a few blocks away.

Police responded this morning to a report of an injury. They found a seriously injured man lying in the street. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

A second man in the street suffered a head injury. He was hospitalized in unspecified condition.

When police found the suspected motorist, his vehicle was missing a tire and running on the rim.

Authorities say several people standing on the porch escaped injury when the vehicle crashed into it. A garage across the street was also hit.

The suspect's name hasn't been released.
