Roberto Garza Palacios, 28, of Germantown, Md., will not be charged in the December 2017 traffic death of an FBI agent Carolos Wolff and a deputy state fire marshal on I-270 in Montgomery County, WTOP radio reports.

The decision comes after prosecutors in Montgomery County found there was not enough to charge Roberto Garza Palacios, 28, of Germantown with anything more than a traffic violation.

“This is just a really, really nasty accident,” said Garza Palacios’ attorney Hasim Humayun.

On Dec. 8, FBI agent Wolff and Deputy State Fire Marshal Sander Cohen were struck by a car driven by Garza Palacios as they stood in the left shoulder lane of I-270, next to a concrete median wall, WTOP reports. Cohen had stopped to help Wolff after his car had become disabled, according to police.

“This is just a really, really nasty accident,” Garza Palacios’ attorney Hasim Humayun tells WTOP.
