Man dies in hit and run at Cedar Ave./E. Lake Nokomis Parkway


A pedestrian was struck by an unknown vehicle on Thursday morning, Jan. 12, 2023 and was killed at the Cedar-Edgewater-Lake Nokomis Parkway intersection. Police responded to the report of a person in a snowbank at about 7:10 a.m.
"The specifics that led to this predictable and tragic death will eventually emerge. Every neighbor and leaders in every government agency with jurisdiction over this area, Hennepin County, Minneapolis, and the Minneapolis Park Board know how dangerous this area is to anyone passing through. This area is so dangerous that for decades we have held periodic public meetings to gather specific feedback and neighborhood suggestions to make it a safer area. After decades of engagement that area is full of signs, striped in gallons of paint, and there’s an electronic sign notifying vehicles of their speed just north of the crosstown where the speed limit drops to 35MPH," wrote Parks Commissioner Steffanie Musich, who lives nearby. "Please join me in holding David Norris’ family and the people who loved David in your thoughts. And go a step further to honor David’s life by taking action to ensure that my colleagues and I can demonstrate to county and city staff that our community supports changes that will prevent future deaths."
