A Dec. 7 accident that resulted in the death of a 79-year-old Lawrence woman was just that, an accident, and no charges will be filed, said Douglas County Dist. Atty. Jerry Wells.
After reviewing police reports, Wells said he decided there was no evidence of criminal conduct when a van struck Lillian J. Baur as she crossed Iowa Street, near University Drive.
According to police reports, Mrs. Baur and her husband, E. Jackson, had been walking east across Iowa about 8:45 p.m. when Mrs. Baur was struck by a van heading south on Iowa.
She was pronounced dead at Lawrence Memorial Hospital a short time after the accident.
