GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - No one will be prosecuted for the August 2017 traffic death of a Grand Island man.

Justin Foster, 28, was killed when he was struck by a westbound vehicle on Faidley Avenue, near Howard Avenue on August 7, 2017. That location is near CHI Health St. Francis hospital.

Robin Nehls, 48, Grand Island, was charged with felony failure to stop and render aid. This past Monday a judge dismissed those charges at the request of the Hall County Attorney.

Deputy County Attorney Susan Carstensen told Local4 that as the investigation of the incident continued, it seemed clear that they would not have enough evidence to convict Nehls.
