Woman fatally hit in south Minneapolis is ID’d
Authorities on Sunday identified the woman who was run over by a vehicle and killed last week in Minneapolis.
Debra Skolos, 47, of Bloomington, was hit about 8:30 p.m. Thursday near Penn Avenue S. and W. 54th Street, the Hennepin County medical examiners office said.
The vehicle was heading south on Penn at the time, and Skolos may not have been in a crosswalk, according to police. The driver cooperated with police.
Star Tribune music critic Chris Riemenschneider said he knew Skolos as a die-hard music fan and just a really great person who was always a treat to see and talk to at shows, and to run into in the skyway. ... I will miss her.
