    The medical examiner's office says the woman was Elyse Mary Stern. She was riding her bike Saturday about 2:15 a.m. when she was struck by a car. She died of multiple blunt-force injuries.
    Police Sgt. William Palmer says Stern wasn't wearing a helmet or reflective gear and her bike didn't have lights.
    Minneapolis police say the driver fled after the collision but officers found him within minutes after witnesses provided a description of the vehicle.
    Police arrested a 27-year-old man whom they say showed signs of intoxication. He was taken into custody on tentative charges of driving while intoxicated and criminal vehicular operation.
