    I hope the paper will follow up on this and let us all know if the young lady is ever ticketed, and brought up on charges. This would be a good case for Drivers Ed teachers to follow and use as an example. The local municipality may want to look at ways to improve the intersection so this kind of thing will not happen again.
    Thank you Kevin for your example to the world. You will be missed.

    I would have also thought it appropriate to mention that the driver that died leaves his dear wife and 3 preious children. Also that he was highly regarded in his community as he was highly regarded for his quiet service minded actions and deep faith. To make this article more personal that a young man passed away that led a full, active, spiritual loving life.

    These investigations take time. You have to make sure you have all the evidence processed and can re-produce the scene. The driver's blood is sent to the state lab to be processed; this takes a couple of weeks to be completed. The law enforcement officers have to be make sure all details of the case are completed correctly before they can file charges.

    Because he just barely passed away. But now that he has died I'm sure charges will be forthcoming.

    This story is rather incomplete. No mention if the young woman has been questioned by as to why she missed the stop sign. Was there a cell phone involved? Is the police still investigating and that is why no charges have been filed. At least a speeding ticket and running a stop sign would warrent a ticket. I would think they would consider vehicular manslaughter or reckless driving?

    why have no charges been filed yet?
