ECTOR COUNTY - All charges were dropped for another traffic death in Ector County.

Back in May, Sandra Bell crossed over into an oncoming lane of traffic killing her passenger and a teenage passenger in another car.

After an investigation by Odessa Police, she was no billed, meaning her actions didn't amount to a crime.

Ector County District Attorney, Bobby Bland, released a statement saying quote, "When tragedies like this occur, it is understandable to want to hold someone accountable. However not all traffic deaths are the result of criminal activity and therefore cannot be prosecuted by the State of Texas."
