CRITTENDEN COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Boone Nance has determined that no charges will be filed in a hit and run crash last year that killed a Greene County teenager. 

According to Second Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Scott Ellington, Nance reviewed the case file involving the crash involving Makenna Haynes of Paragould. 

Haynes died Nov. 18 on Interstate 55 close to the 14-mile marker in Crittenden County, according to Arkansas State Police. 

Haynes' family said last year that she was traveling home from Memphis with her friends when she was struck and killed asking for help in changing a flat tire. The family also said last year instead of being angry about the crash, they chose to forgive and depend on their religious faith to help them through a trying time.
