Charges dropped in fatal Vegas police crash

Associated Press

LAS VEGAS – Authorities say they have dismissed all charges against a man whose truck was hit last month by a Las Vegas police officer speeding in his patrol car.

A police statement released Friday says investigators believe 45-year-old Calvin Darling was not at fault in the crash that killed Officer James Manor.

Manor was found to be driving 109 mph on a city street before hitting Darling’s pickup truck. He had not activated his lights or siren.

Sheriff Douglas Gillespie says Manor’s speed “was both unsafe and unreasonable” and caused the May 7 crash.

Police initially arrested Darling on suspicion of driving under the influence and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.

Darling was scheduled to be arraigned on the charges Monday.
