Pedestrian who darted into Apple Valley traffic dies

APPLE VALLEY, Minn. (AP) — Police say a man has died after he unexpectedly darted into traffic near a busy intersection in Apple Valley and was struck by a vehicle.

Thirty-seven-year-old Ian Micheal Rosch died early Friday at Hennepin County Medical Center. He was struck around 7 p.m. Thursday near the intersection of Cedar Avenue and County Road 42. First responders arrived to find him severely injured and unresponsive in the northbound lane.

Police say Rosch was in the center median on Cedar, about 100 yards north of the intersection, when he attempted to cross Cedar and continue east. Police say that left the driver little time to respond. The vehicle's driver and passenger were not injured.

The crash remains under investigation.
