Lab Reports Delay Charging Decision In Fatal Accident

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A decision on whether charges will be filed in an accident that claimed the life of a 15-year old girl is delayed while authorities wait for lab reports.

Sheriff’s investigators tell 13 News that toxology and other accident video evidence was collected and submitted to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation for evaluation. The District Attorney's Office says it cannot complete and turn over their reports for review of possible charges until those tests are complete. There's no timetable for when they will be complete.

Madison “Maddie” Naill died March 19 when a Cadillac driven by Hunter Hillmer rolled off SE 45th Street. Hillmer and another passenger, Blake Hanvy, were injured and hospitalized. Families of the two men have requested no information be released as to their conditions.
