DOVER, N.H. (AP) - Authorities say no criminal charges will be filed against a former New Hampshire state representative in connection with a fatal crash in December.

Police said Michael Weeden, also a former city councilor in Dover, was fastening his seatbelt as he turned from his driveway. He crossed the center line into the opposite lane of traffic, colliding with a car driven by 87-year-old Martin Carignan of Somersworth. Carignan died at a Boston hospital the day after the Dec. 2 crash.

Foster’s Daily Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1g742eM) both Strafford County Attorney Tom Velardi and Dover police said Monday they determined Weeden was “neither purposeful, knowing, nor reckless in causing the collision.”

Weeden has been charged with a violation for operating in the wrong lane of traffic and has to pay a $100 fine.
