Still No Tickets - Haligus Rd. Accident

An Open Letter to Sheriff Nygren -

On October 26, 2007, a fatal crash occurred on Haligus Road. Two students died, and the driver and another passenger were injured. The crash investigation was handled by the McHenry County Sheriff's Department.

No charges have ever been filed in this accident.

Presumably, the sheriff's department initially waited for the results of toxicology testing. The Illinois State Police was running about 90 days behind on reports. Your department would have received the results about the end of January.

Now another three months have passed. What's the delay?

This seems to be a straight-forward accident. The driver, for reasons undisclosed to-date, ran off the right side of the road into a ditch, over-corrected (narrow shoulder with steep grading down to fence and tree line), came back up on the road and into the path of an oncoming truck.

Is it not past time for the deputy-in-charge to complete the investigation and issue the appropriate tickets?
