Sedgwick County DA says no charges in fatal crash

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- The Sedgwick County prosecutor's office says it's not pursuing charges in a rollover crash that killed 14-year-old Derby boy.

Braxton Kooser died in January after the SUV he was in veered off a rural Sedgwick County road. Kooser, who was thrown from the vehicle, died at the scene. Three other teenagers in the vehicle were injured.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/15XssSl ) that Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett's Office says it has reviewed the details surrounding Kooser's death, and that no charges will be filed at this time.

Sheriff's spokesman Lt. David Mattingly said Friday the case was submitted to Bennett's office last week after an investigation that took nearly eight months.
