A Wyoming man was arrested by Minnesota State Patrol on June 26 for suspicion of killing a fellow Wyoming resident in a June 17 hit and run accident, according to the Forest Lake Times. Trevor Langlois, a 24-year-old Army veteran, had pulled over and was outside of his vehicle when he was struck by another vehicle on a southbound entrance ramp to I-35 in Hinckley, Minnesota. He was transported to Essentia Health in Sandstone where he later died from the injuries he suffered in the crash. Derek Anthony Sanders, 31, is being held at the Pine County Sheriff’s Office after the Bloomington Police Department received a tip that led to the recovery of a vehicle registered to him that matched the description of the vehicle suspected in the hit and run.
It is a tragedy that Trevor Langlois lost his life in this manner. A car accident is usually just that, an accident, but when a driver compounds that mistake by failing to stop and render aid as well as fleeing the scene, then it’s no longer just an accident, it’s a crime. Would’ve stopping and rendering aid saved the life of Trevor Langlois? Unfortunately, we’ll never know.
