CRYSTAL, Minn. (AP) - The Hennepin County medical examiner's office says a Crystal man who was found dead in a street died of blunt-force injuries.

The agency said Monday police continue to investigate the death of 39-year-old Michael John Rymer.

Witnesses told police they were driving Saturday about 1:40 a.m. when they noticed Rymer laying in the next lane. They say they stopped and yelled for him to get off the street.

They told investigators an SUV then drove by, struck the man and kept going.

Rymer was pronounced dead at the scene.

Crystal police say they don't think the collision was an intentional act, but they'd still like to speak with the SUV driver. They ask anyone with information to call them. Crystal is about 10 miles northwest of Minneapolis.
