Any updates on this?

On August 4th 2017 my father, Calvin Wayne Burgess, was hit and killed crossing a crosswalk on woodruff road. Fox Carolina aired the story only a few times. Same night it happened it was reported that the driver was not at fault even though my dad was pushing my nephew in a wheelchair across a crosswalk legally crossing. The driver got away without even a ticket. No sobriety tests, no questions. Took a state trooper an hour to get there and brushed it under the rug. It was ruled my dads fault? Because the drivers family knew a guy. We knew it was injustice from the jump but the trooper as well as the driver knows the truth. Make sure the young lady gets justice or it could be swept under the rug too.
