Statesville Police Chief Tom Anderson said the driver of a vehicle involved in a fatal accident late Sunday night will not face any charges.

Michael D. Hart, 28, of Statesville died Tuesday at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem.

Anderson said all of the evidence collected by traffic Officer Ben Hardy was presented to the district attorney’s office and the determination was made that the driver was not at fault.

Evidence, along with witness statements, Anderson said, indicate the Hart was in the road on East Broad Street near Birdsey Street around 11:39 p.m. Sunday when he was struck.
