HASTINGS, Minn. (AP) – Prosecutors in Dakota County say a driver who struck and killed a pedestrian and left the scene said she thought she had hit a deer, even though the victim’s head struck the windshield. Felony charges were filed against 30-year-old Breyona Cotton Tuesday. She’s accused of leaving the scene of the deadly crash in Inver Grove Heights in early January and failing to notify authorities. Fifty-five-year-old Haimanot Gebremedhin was killed in the crash.
