Ms. Prewett, the driver of the vehicle was determined to be at fault for failure to yield. However, no charges will be filed against the driver? Why not?

Being at fault has no bearing

Being at fault has no bearing on being charged. That's only for insurance claim purposes.

@Bama Man :BOOKER was the jogger, not GRIFFIN. Maj Griffin, I assume was the lead cop on the scene.

I would assume they mean no CRIMINAL charges will be filed. I'm sure she received a citation of some sort... at least I hope she did.

    "Reading news articles is a lot like a game of charades" (a different drum).

It sure can be. I don't know why the second sentence wasn't written this way: "Maj. Jim Griffin of the Richmond County Sheriff's Department said the woman, Lee Catherine Booker, was transported to Trinity Hospital with injuries to her leg after being struck at the Pikes Lane intersection just before 11 a.m."

It would've helped if the staff writers had adequately identified the people when they first appeared in the article.
