Police say they will not press charges against a teacher who hit a teen with his car, killing the student.
The News and Observer of Raleigh says 51-year-old Robert Ken Lee will not be charged in the death of 18-year-old Jorge Chavarria. Police said the death was an accident that had nothing to do with the driver.
18-year-old Jorge Chavarria died at a hospital in Raleigh at around 7:30 a.m. Thursday.
Chavarria was a junior at Fuquay-Varina High School student. Authorities say he was crossing the street in front of the school at around 7 a.m. Wednesday when he was hit by a car driven by 51-year-old Robert Ken Lee.
Lee teaches career and technical education at Fuquay-Varina. He has not been cited in the accident, and state records show he does not have a history of traffic infractions.
Principal Edward McFarland says the school has assembled a crisis team to help students cope with the accident.
