EAGAN, Minn. (AP) - A married couple out for an evening walk were struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver in Eagan.

Authorities say a 36-year-old man was arrested early Friday.

The crash happened Thursday night, near a strip mall. Authorities arrived to find the 74-year-old man and 57-year-old woman in the parking lot. Both were pronounced dead at a hospital.

Deputy Chief Roger New tells the Star Tribune the man and woman lived nearby and walked the mall daily.

Their names were not released.



Police say the suspect’s vehicle was found less than a mile away an hour later. The man was arrested in Apple Valley, about six miles away, several hours after the crash.
