21-year-old driver will not be charged in death of Raleigh pedestrian who was lying in road

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- A 21-year-old driver hit and killed a Raleigh pedestrian early Monday morning.

North Carolina State Highway Patrol (SHP) said the driver will not face any criminal charges.

SHP said the driver was not speeding and was not under the influence of alcohol.

The pedestrian was reportedly lying in the middle of Landover Lane when the driver ran over him.

The driver continued down the street to his grandparents house. Once there, he called 911 to report what happened.

Editor's note: Initially law enforcement officers at the scene said they believed multiple cars ran over the victim several times. SHP has since said that was not the case.
