About the Roseville Pedestrian Accident
According to reports, last Thursday’s crash in Roseville, MN, which claimed the lives of 45-year-old Meridith Aikens and 47-year-old Robert Buxton has been under police investigation.
Tips from the public led them to the St.Paul bar where they believe was a driver involved in the accident. Authorities report that the 61-year-old Roseville man was under the influence, and attempted to escape the bar in his car when officers arrested him on Saturday.
They had arrested a pick-up driver earlier but were likely looking for more than one driver.
