The Mercer County District Attorney has announced that no charges will be filed in connection with a traffic accident that resulted in the mother of three children losing her legs.

DA Peter Acker issued a news release on Tuesday about the January 10th early morning accident in Sharon in which a garbage truck struck Stephanie Tubb at North Oakland Avenue and East Silver Street as she was walking to her job at the local McDonalds.

Both of Tubbs's legs were partially amputated because of the accident.

Acker says the review of more than 1500 pages of records reveals that the driver of the Tri-County garbage truck tested negative for alcohol and drugs.

According to the press release, a video review from the garbage truck and a nearby business shows that the truck was traveling below the speed limit.

In addition, the investigation found that Tubb was jaywalking in the middle of the road and wearing dark clothing when she was struck by the truck.

Acker acknowledges that the truck driver appeared to violate the City of Sharon ordinance prohibiting garbage pickup before 6 a.m. by working at 4 a.m.  However, the DA found that the driver's conduct was neither reckless nor grossly negligent as defined by law. 

According to the news release, Tubbs may still pursue civil remedies in the case.
