Brooklyn Center man charged in fatal hit-and-run
Charges have been filed in a fatal hit and run case in Brooklyn Park.

On Saturday, Feb. 4, at about 6 p.m., a man was struck near the intersection of Brooklyn Boulevard and Kentucky Avenue North. According to the criminal complaint, one witness heard "screeching tires" and another saw a man "propelled into the air." The driver was seen headed westbound on Brooklyn Boulevard.

The victim died on Feb. 8. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner identified him as John Ingram, 50, of Brooklyn Park.

About an hour after the accident, the driver, Ahmed Hassan, 30, of Brooklyn Center, turned himself in to police. The complaint says Hassan worked for Amazon delivery and had a pick-up in Maple Grove. Hassan later told police he was not feeling well and had not taken his prescribed insulin, and said "I did not know what I hit."

Hassan initially drove to Brooklyn Center where his brother-in-law lived. The brother-in-law noticed Hassan was "shaking uncontrollably." The brother-in-law told police that Hassan "wanted to be truthful and could not lie anymore," the complaint said.
