ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Asheville police say a driver who struck two children and a woman will not face more charges in the crash at this time.

Police say in a news release Monday that Elvin Hernandez had a green light on Thursday evening when he struck all three. Ten-year-old Alexander Bautista-Gomez and 5-year-old Milena Alejandro-Bautista died at Mission Hospital. Seventy-two-year-old Aurora Garcia was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say the woman and children were not at an intersection and were crossing the road in an unlit section.

Hernandez has already been charged with not having a valid North Carolina driver’s license. Authorities say they will continue to investigate and consult with prosecutors if new evidence is discovered.
