    No criminal charges will be filed against the driver who struck and killed the 87-year-old father of New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson, St. Petersburg police say.

    Police spokesman Mike Puetz told the St. Petersburg Times Tuesday there is no evidence that 21-year-old Jeffrey W. Lachance did anything that would warrant a criminal charge. Traffic homicide investigators concluded he was not driving recklessly or impaired by drugs or alcohol at the time.

    Traffic investigators are still examining other evidence, such as skid marks, which might show that Lachance was speeding or made an improper lane change. Lachance could then receive a traffic ticket.

    John Alderson was struck Saturday night while crossing the street. He died at the hospital.
