The Colorado Springs Police Dept. has chosen NOT to pursue formal charges against the driver involved in the crash that killed Officer Matt Tyner.
This happened on July 24th, while Tyner was conducting traffic enforcement near Austin Bluffs Parkway and Silver Drive.
The decision was based on discussions with Officer Tyner's family who did not want to cause the driver additional pain or grief by putting him through a court proceeding. The department, however, continues to search for the driver of the black motorcycle who Officer Tyner was in pursuit of at the time of the crash.
