No charges will be filed against the driver who survived a fatal car-motorcycle accident at 204th and Harrison Streets, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office said Thursday.
The investigation concluded that neither man “had time to react in order to prevent the collision,” the Sheriff's Office said.
Dylan M. Krula, 19, the motorcycle rider, died in the Sunday crash.
Krula, who was wearing a helmet, was traveling “well above'' the posted speed limit of 55 mph, according to witness statements and physical evidence.
The Sheriff's Office said after consulting with the Douglas County Attorney's Office, it was determined no charges will be filed.
Krula was riding south on 204th Street about 4:20 p.m. when his motorcycle collided with the passenger side of a Volkswagen, which was heading west on Harrison Street.
The investigation concluded that Douglas Hassel, the Volkswagen driver, had stopped at the posted stop sign on Harrison Street. He checked traffic along 204th street before entering the intersection.
Hassel, 50, told authorities he believed there was plenty of distance from the nearest approaching car traveling southbound. He said he did not see Krula's Suzuki motorcycle behind the closest southbound car.
Krula, riding “at excessive speeds,'' drove around the car he was following, the Sheriff's Office said.
