In the early hours of a fateful Saturday, a heart-wrenching two-car accident unfolded at the intersection of 50th Street and Lyndale Avenue S. in south Minneapolis, resulting in the death of a 42-year-old man. The collision involved a Ford F-150 truck and a Mazda CX-30 subcompact SUV, leaving a community in mourning and a family devastated by the loss.
According to the Minneapolis police, Julio Armando Alvarado, a 24-year-old man, was suspected of driving under the influence at the time of the accident. He was behind the wheel of the F-150 during the collision and was subsequently arrested by the authorities.
Concerned about his condition, Alvarado was taken to a hospital for medical evaluation before being incarcerated on probable cause of criminal vehicular homicide.
Tragically, the impact of the collision claimed the life of the Mazda driver, who was the sole occupant of the vehicle. As police arrived at the scene around 12:50 a.m., they discovered the deceased man in the Mazda, which bore significant damage to its driver’s side.
The Ford F-150 also sustained severe front-end damage, with the impact causing damage to a nearby retaining wall. As the community grapples with the shock and sorrow brought on by this devastating incident, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office is set to release the identity of the deceased man, along with the cause and nature of his untimely passing.
The loss of a life in such a tragic and avoidable circumstance underscores the importance of responsible driving and the severe consequences that can arise from driving while intoxicated. In the wake of this harrowing event, friends, family, and the wider community are left to grieve and come to terms with the profound loss of a loved one.
The authorities’ commitment to holding accountable those responsible for such accidents serves as a reminder of the need for constant vigilance and adherence to traffic laws to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone on the roads. As investigations continue, the community stands united in mourning and supporting the grieving family during this difficult time.
