BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Prosecutors have dismissed a manslaughter charge against a 16-year-old girl involved in a July traffic accident in Bismarck that killed a motorcycle rider.

The Bismarck Tribune reported Monday that the charge was dismissed on Friday. Prosecutors told the newspaper that experts in reconstructing accidents identified some things that raised reasonable doubt in the case.

Thirty-four-year-old Cody Jacobs died when his motorcycle and the teen's car collided.

Authorities have not identified the girl. Juvenile court proceedings are not open to the public.
