No criminal charges in deadly fire truck collision

Houston police are not asking for criminal charges after a deadly fire truck crash last year, and now the report is being reviewed by the District Attorney's Office. Two fire trucks collided on Westheimer and Dunlavy on their way to a call in March 2009, killing cyclist Leigh Boone. The collision also injured nine firefighters and one other civilian.

The driver of one of the trucks was ticketed after the crash and a subsequent investigation revealed the driver of the ladder truck was at fault for failure to use due caution.

Back in January, Houston city council voted on a $225,000 settlement for Boone's parents.
