    Nor will charges be filed. My brother was hit and run over while in a crosswalk. Sustained life threatening injuries, spent six weeks in hospital. Driver who had restricted license and wasn't supposed to drive after dark, made a right on red without stopping per law or barely slowing down. Witness saw everything and driver was never cited. Fayetteville living isn't normal by most standards.
