Montgomery County prosecutors found there was not enough to charge Roberto Garza Palacios, 28, of Germantown with anything more than a traffic violation. Garza Palacios was cited for negligent driving and fined $280, which he paid on June 25, according to court records.
The driver in the December 2017 crash on I-270, that killed a deputy state fire marshal and off-duty FBI officer has been charged with a traffic offense.
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan called a firefighter killed in the line of duty a hero at one of a pair of funerals held Thursday to remember the public service of an FBI agent and the firefighter who were killed along Interstate 270 last week.
The FBI agent killed Friday night when he was struck by a vehicle along Interstate 270 was the epitome of the American dream, and his family is finding his tragic loss unfathomable. Family members sat down with WTOP and reminisced about the kind of person Carlos Wolff was. See photos.
