PHOENIX (AP) -

The Arizona Department of Public Safety says its investigation continues but it doesn't appear that circumstances warrant criminally charging an SUV driver in a fatal crash.

The DPS says the SUV driver has received a traffic citation in the Monday wreck in which a motorcyclist hurt in a previous wreck was killed along with a Good Samaritan when the SUV struck on Interstate 17 in Phoenix.

A statement issued by DPS expresses sympathy for all involved in the incident.

DPS previously identified the SUV driver as 34-year-old Brian Higbee of Phoenix and those killed in the crash as 38-year-old Johnny Youngblood of Phoenix and 53-year-old Beverly Click of Sun City.
