Cab driver won't be charged in Butler's death

The cab driver involved in the recent death of Utah cyclist Allan Butler, who was killed while crossing the Strip in Las Vegas last Friday morning, will not face any charges, according to an article in the Las Vegas Sun. Although it was initially reported that the cab driven by Stefan Crosby had run a red light, the Sun wrote that the cab had a green light and was going through an intersection at Buccaneer Lane when it encountered Butler and two others, who were jaywalking across Las Vegas Boulevard. Two walked behind the cab, but Butler walked in front of it and hit the cab's windscreen, before rolling off it. He was taken to Sunrise Hospital and died shortly after arrival, said the police.

Detective Doug Nutton, of Metro's fatal detail, was quoted by the Sun as saying that the Crosby was not at fault and would not face any charges or citations. Neither Crosby nor his passenger were hurt in the accident.
