DA says no charges in Port Clyde death

PORT CLYDE (WGME) -- A New York woman will not face charges following an investigation involving her car last summer that claimed the life of a young boy and injured several others.

The Knox County District Attorney says there is not sufficient evidence at this time to charge 61-year-old Cheryl Torgerson.

On August 11, 2013, investigators say Torgerson's 2007 Infiniti rammed into a building, several parked cars and people, killing 9-year-old Dylan Gold and injuring his 6-year-old brother and the boys' mother and Port Clyde resident Jonathan Coggeshall.

The DA says Torgerson claimed her accelerator became stuck and data from the vehicle indicates it was down 100 percent at one point, but that there is no evidence the pedal was stuck.

The DA says there is also not sufficient evidence to charge Torgerson with manslaughter.
