CREATED Sep. 4, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Las Vegas man accused of drunk driving and killing a member of the police Explorer program will not be charged with a DUI.

According to the district attorney's office, blood tests conducted on 29-year-old Jvon Williams determined that his blood alcohol content was not high enough to be charged with driving under the influence.

Williams is still being charged with leaving the scene of an accident and reckless driving.

The crash that killed 19-year-old Angel Velasquez happened on Aug. 1. According to police, the crash happened after Williams ran a stop sign near Sahara Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard.

Williams fled the scene. A Good Samaritan followed him and wrote down his license plate number for the police.

He was arrested shortly after the crash.
