Charges: Vodka-swigging speeder on a death wish killed Bloomington plow worker


An SUV driver on a death wish swigged vodka from a bottle and went on an erratic and intoxicated speeding frenzy before hitting a city snowplow in Bloomington, killing one of two city employees on duty, according to charges.

Marie J. Hall, 24, of Richfield, was charged Wednesday in Hennepin County District with third-degree murder, criminal-vehicular homicide and criminal-vehicular operation in connection with the collision Jan. 28 on American Boulevard near 5th Avenue S.

Suffering fatal head injuries in the wreck was Tyler J. Lenort, 38, of Lakeville, who was climbing into the truck just as Hall’s SUV came barreling in, the criminal complaint read. Lenort died over the weekend at Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC).
