The police are not laying criminal charges in the death of a pedestrian killed last month.
Yukon RCMP Cpl. Jay Waldner said the investigation found that the case didn’t meet the criteria for criminal charges.
The driver, a 56-year-old Whitehorse man, is facing charges under the Motor Vehicle Act. He has been charged with failing to yield to a pedestrian crossing at a crosswalk and driving without due care and attention.
William Marvin Lagimodiere was hit by an SUV on Feb. 26 while crossing Fourth Avenue between Ray Street and Second Avenue.
The 69-year-old died later that day.
From very early on in the investigation, police said the driver was co-operative. Officers said he was sober at the time of the crash.
The name of the driver cannot be released until he makes his first appearance in court. That is scheduled to happen April 29.
