N. Idaho driver's hit-and-run case dropped, for now
SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) -- Prosecutors are dropping a felony charge filed against a northern Idaho woman accused of fleeing the scene of a fatal collision with an off-duty police officer after he'd been thrown from his motorcycle during a crash on state highway 200.
The Bonner County Daily Bee reports the case against Brianna Lucille Knapp was dismissed as prosecutors await the findings of a crash investigation and reconstruction report. The case was dismissed with prejudice, which means it can be refiled.
Prosecutors initially charged Knapp in July, saying she left the scene of an accident that resulted in the death of 47-year-old Kurt Henson. But a preliminary hearing in the case has been repeatedly postponed as prosecutors waited for the investigation results.
A judge granted dismissal of the case Wednesday.
