The Denver Post reports that charges against a young woman who was arrested in connection to a hit-and-run accident are to be dropped. A sixteen year old boy who was running away from a fight was struck and killed on New Years Eve; the driver that hit the boy fled the scene. While looking for a car that matched the description of the vehicle involved in the accident, police were led to a car owned by a 19-year-old girl, which also had damage that the police originally believed was consistent with the accident. The girl’s family and the pastor of her church, however, say that she was at a church function at the time of the accident. The police have said that they will drop the charges, and return the focus of their investigation to looking for a car that matches the description of the one from the incident.
