February 5, 2019

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — An elderly driver won’t face charges in a fatal forklift crash in Grand Forks County.

State’s Attorney Haley Wamstad has declined to file charges against 80-year-old Marilyn Pederson, of Northwood. She crashed into a forklift on Highway 15 near Thompson last June killing 61-year-old Juan Contreras of Grand Forks.

Pederson and her 75-year-old passenger were not hurt.

KVRR-TV reports Wamstad reviewed the case and decided criminal charges weren’t warranted.
