A veteran of the St. Paul Police Department who backed into 101-year-old Roza Sakhina had previously received reprimands for earlier accidents that the department deemed preventable.
Sakhina died last week after being hit by a St. Paul police vehicle on Aug. 16 as she attempted to cross the street on the 800 block of Cleveland Avenue S.
St. Paul police today identified the officer who backed into Sakhina as Lori Goulet, who has served the city for 19 years, including the last 16 years as a police officer.
Police records show that Goulet was involved in preventable accidents in 1997 and 2007, for which she received oral reprimands. She's also received nine commendations during her career.
St. Paul Police Department spokesman Howie Padilla said the incident is under investigation. He said an accident review board will make recommendations to Chief Tom Smith.
Sakhina's funeral was Friday, Aug. 23, 2013.
