Man with suspended license admits causing high-speed crash that killed Twin Cities doctor
August 9, 2023
A St. Paul man accused of driving with a suspended license at speeds of more than 100 mph has admitted that he caused a two-vehicle crash that killed a doctor going to work at a Twin Cities hospital.
Norman D. Toney, 34, of St. Paul, agreed in Ramsey County District Court last week to plead guilty to criminal vehicular homicide, gross negligence, in connection with the collision on Nov. 9, 2021, that killed Dr. Daniel Schnobrich, 40, of Arden Hills.
The plea agreement reached between prosecutors and the defense includes dismissal of a charge of fleeing police and a criminal vehicular homicide count alleging illicit drug use. The agreement indicates that the County Attorney's Office will seek a 10-year sentence for Toney.
