Pedestrians hit and killed in Edina, Bloomington and Belle Plaine
Three pedestrians were struck and killed by vehicles in separate incidents in the metro area in the past two days, authorities said.
A man died from injuries he sustained Monday after being trapped under an Xcel Energy truck that jumped the curb and hit him at 86th Street and Nicollet Avenue, Bloomington Police said.
The Xcel truck was pulling a trailer and headed south on Nicollet Avenue at 6:53 a.m. when it swerved to avoid a car that was making a left turn from northbound Nicollet onto westbound 86th Street. The truck left the roadway, hit the pedestrian and a utility pole on the southwest corner of the intersection, said Deputy Chief Denis Otterness.
