ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -

Asheville police said charges will not be filed against the drivers involved in a multi-vehicle crash that killed a pedestrian Monday night.

Police said 45-year-old Dean Bush, of Asheville, was first hit along Tunnel Road near the Blue Ridge Parkway as he was crossing the road. They said Bush was then hit by the second car as it drove through the opposite lane. They said a third vehicle then hit Bush before turning onto Blue Ridge Parkway. They said a minivan then hit Bush and dragged him from Tunnel Road onto Interstate 240 west to Charlotte Street, where the van exited the interstate. They said that when the third driver stopped her van, she noticed Bush's body lodged underneath.

Investigators said the district attorney has decided not to file charges because Bush crossed the road in an area not designated for pedestrian traffic. They said the weather and time of day made it difficult for the drivers to see Bush.

Police said they are still looking for the third vehicle involved in the crash. It was described as a small, white passenger vehicle that was traveling west on Tunnel Road.

Anyone with information about the third vehicle is asked to call the Asheville Police Department at 828-252-1110.
