SPRINGFIELD, Ore. (AP) - If police and prosecutors find no evidence of reckless or negligent driving, the man who killed three children in Springfield could face only traffic violations.

The Register-Guard newspaper reports (https://is.gd/CUatbk ) 68-year-old Larry LaThorpe of Springfield hasn’t been arrested or cited for Feb. 22 collision.

LaThorpe stopped at the scene and cooperated with investigators. He apparently had not been drinking. He said he had a green light and didn’t see pedestrians in the crosswalk until after his pickup struck them.

The collision killed 8-year-old John Alexander Day, 5-year-old McKenzie Mae Hudson, and 4-year-old Tyler James Hudson. Their mother was injured.
