No charges in UND crash that left man in coma

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — No charges will be filed in a September crash on the University of North Dakota campus that left one person in a coma.

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — No charges will be filed in a September crash on the University of North Dakota campus that left one person in a coma.

The Grand Forks Herald reports that prosecutor David Jones determined criminal charges weren't warranted.

Police say 74-year-old Loran Carl was crossing a campus street when he was struck by a car driven by 22-year-old Josiah Nordmark. Carl suffered a brain injury and several broken bones, and he's been in a coma since the Sept. 8 crash.

Police reports say Nordmark was wearing sunglasses and had the car's visor down to ward off the sun's glare but he said he didn't see Carl. Police say Nordmark was going 14 to 25 mph.

Carl works in UND's Facilities Building. Nordmark is a student.
