Prosecutors: No texting, no charges for 16-year-old driver

GLENWOOD, Minn. – Pope County prosecutors say a 16-year-old driver wasn’t texting and won’t face felony charges in a car crash that killed an elderly Morris woman.

Assistant County Attorney Chad Larson said there’s no evidence to support felony charges against the teenager who was driving a Porsche that collided head-on with the victim’s car last September.

KSAX-TV reported that prosecutors have ruled out texting while driving as a factor in the crash.

Margaret Miller, 77, died at the Glenwood Hospital. The Minnewaska Area High School student was treated and released from the hospital following the crash.
