A Cargill hedge fund manager was killed in a hit-and-run accident over the weekend in suburban Minneapolis.
Michael Rymer was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident in Crystal, Minn., early Saturday morning. He had spent Friday night out with friends watching the NCAA college basketball tournament and was going to a friend’s house at the time of the accident, around 1:40 a.m.
Rymer leaves a wife and three daughters, aged seven to 15 years.
“He was an easygoing guy, always happy to help you out, and had lots of friends around the Robbinsdale and Crystal area,” his father, Joseph Rymer, told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. “He was in the prime of his life.”
Crystal police are still seeking the driver of the dark-colored SUV believed to have hit Rymer.
