Adam Pattishall Charged With Criminal Vehicular Homicide In Brooklyn Park Crash

BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. (WCCO) -- A St. Paul man faces charges after he allegedly slammed a stolen pickup truck into the back of another vehicle over the weekend, killing the driver and critically injuring a passenger.

Adam Pattishall, 22, is charged with criminal vehicular homicide, criminal vehicular operation and third-degree drug possession, according to Hennepin County court documents.

According to the criminal complaint, on Sunday Morning, an Osseo police officer saw a Chevrolet Silverado speed out of a parking lot on County Road 81 while checking another vehicle.

At County Road 81 and Brooklyn Boulevard, about a mile away, the Silverado rear-ended a Kia Sportage while speeding, the complaint states. The man driving the Kia was killed, and a woman in the passenger seat was hospitalized in critical condition. She has had several emergency surgeries and suffered a brain bleed and a broken back, the complaint states.

Witnesses told police they saw a man run from the Silverado toward nearby businesses. Shortly after, police saw a man -- identified a Pattishall -- exit a nearby gas station, with what appeared to be blood on his clothing.
