Ogden police have wrapped up their investigation into a deadly crash that killed a West High School cheerleader.
The case is now in the hands of the Weber County attorney to determine if any criminal charges are warranted in connection with the crash that killed Alyssa Marie Lopez.
"We presented the case to the county attorney's office and will let them make a decision," Ogden Police Lt. Scott Sangberg told the Deseret Morning News on Thursday.
Lopez, 17, was killed in a three-car crash on the 5100 block of Harrison Boulevard last month as she was leaving the state high school basketball tournament at the Dee Events Center.
Police said a boy driving one car tried to catch up to the car Lopez was riding in, weaving in and out of traffic. His car clipped the vehicle she was in, sending it into a spin in oncoming traffic, where it was T-boned.
On Thursday, Ogden police declined to discuss the results of their investigation, or if they recommended any charges be filed in the case.
"Somebody died, and we're looking at whether you've got vehicle homicide or negligent homicide," Sangberg said.Police said they found no evidence of drugs or alcohol in connection with the crash, but noted that toxicology reports were still anticipated. Prosecutors could also ask police to do follow-up investigations before making a decision, Sangberg said.
