A motorist with a history of driving drunk who was stripped of her license years ago will plead guilty to running over a woman in Brooklyn Center and fleeing as the 84-year-old pedestrian lay in the road with fatal injuries. Tammy R. Olson, 59, reached an agreement with the Hennepin County Attorney's Office to admit to criminal vehicular homicide in connection with the crash on June 1, 2021, near Xerxes Avenue and Bass Lake Road that killed Joyce Acosta. The plea deal calls for Olson, of Brooklyn Center, to receive a four-year term when she is sentenced on Sept.
