Off-duty deputy won't face prosecution for fatal crash that killed ex-Marine
FILLMORE, Calif. (KABC) -- A Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy will not be prosecuted for causing a deadly crash while apparently suffering a seizure.
Michael Cedarland drove into a Starbucks last December while apparently suffering a seizure.
He hit Sergio Mendez, a retired Marine and Iraq war veteran. Mendez was sitting in a chair when Cedarland's SUV crashed through the building and pinned him against a wall.
Mendez died in surgery.
After a yearlong investigation, authorities determined Cedarland was not at fault.
