CHANNING, TX (AP) - A Texas district attorney says a Colorado lawmaker involved in a fatal crash will not face charges in connection with the December accident in the Panhandle.

Hartley County district attorney David Green announced Wednesday that a grand jury declined to indict Colorado Sen. Suzanne Williams.

Investigators say Williams' car drifted into oncoming traffic along U.S. 385 on Dec. 26 and crashed head-on into another car, killing 30-year-old Brianna Gomez of Amarillo. Gomez's unborn child was delivered by cesarean section.

The Colorado legislator's 3-year-old grandson was ejected from her vehicle, but she managed to find the boy and put back into a car seat, according to a preliminary investigative report.

Williams was wearing a seat belt, though her 41-year-old son and two grandsons, were not. All survived.
