FHS grad hurt in hit and run
A 2010 Farmington High School graduate is in a coma after a Nov. 24 hit-and-run accident in St. Paul.
The two were taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul, where both were listed in critical condition. According to a Caring Bridge page set up for Peterson, the Farmington woman is now in stable condition, but remains in a coma.
The car that struck Peterson and Bergeland was located later in the day Nov. 24. On Nov. 29, St. Paul police arrested a 40-year-old St. Paul woman in connection to the hit-and-run.
A Caring Bridge page has been set up to keep family and friends updated on Peterson’s condition. A message to visitors simply reads, “We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most.”
