A Point Coupee Grand Jury won’t seek additional charges against a driver who caused a deadly three-car crash last year.

31-year-old Nicole Salter died the day after Christmas in 2014 due to the crash. Her car was rear ended, and the driver who hit her, Ansley Deshotel, admitted she did not see Salter’s stopped car.

Despite allegations that Deshotel was texting and driving, the grand jury did not find any evidence to indict her on the charge of negligent homicide, which Salter’s family was pushing for.

Salter’s mom, Suzanne, tells 9News that she will continue in her role as an advocate against texting and driving.
