WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — An amended autopsy says the toddler whose ambulance overturned after being struck by a drunken driver died from a brain tumor and not injuries suffered in the crash.
The Winston-Salem Journal reports prosecutor Matt Breeding said Tuesday that 28-year-old Jose Martin Duran Romero will accordingly not be charged in the death of 2-year-old Braylon Hunter Jenkins.
An autopsy report released in September had said the crash knocked a breathing tube from Braylon’s body and was a contributing factor to his death a day later.
Romero is currently charged with driving while impaired, failing to reduce speed and driving without an operator’s license in the February crash.
