Driver in fatal pond crash did not have a valid driver’s license

ST. LOUIS PARK — The driver of a car that crashed into a Twin Cities pond, killing two children and hospitalizing three others, did not have a valid driver’s license, authorities said Friday.

Marion Guerrido, 23, of Brooklyn Center, who escaped the crash without injury had a drivers permit but did not have a licensed driver with her, the Minnesota State Patrol said. According to Minnesota State law, anyone driving with a driver’s permit must be accompanied by a licensed driver.

Two of five children pulled from the car Thursday morning have died, the patrol reported.

The patrol said Zenavia Rennie, 5,  and Alarious Coleman-Guerrido, 7, both of Brooklyn Center, died Thursday.

Zenavia was the stepdaughter and Alarious was the son of the driver.

The other three children -- Aliyana Rennie, 1, Zarihana Rennie, 6, and Amani Coleman-Guerrido, 5, all of Brooklyn Center -- were listed as having serious injuries on the patrol’s website Friday morning.

Guerrido’s car went into the pond shortly after 6 a.m. Thursday the western Twin Cities suburb of St. Louis Park.
