No charges will be filed in the case of a 14-year-old girl from Garner Magnet High School who was hit and killed March 25 trying to get to the school bus.
Officials say a 2001 Pontiac struck Maria Fernandez Jimenez near Highway N.C. 50/Benson Highway and J.R. Drive in Garner, near the Johnston County line around 6:30 a.m.
The Highway Patrol says the accident happened in front of the Jimenez's home, and the bus lights had amber lights flashing but not red lights. The red flashing lights don't activate until the bus completely stops and the door opens.
Officials said the Jimenez's 16-year-old brother was a few steps behind her and two other students were on the other side of street waiting to get on the bus. Six students were already on the bus.
Alcohol and speed were not factors and no charges were filed against the driver, because the red lights were not flashing.
