A prosecutor says a San Francisco firefighter will not be charged after running over and killing a survivor of the Asiana Airlines crash in July.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe announced his decision in an email sent Friday.

Authorities have said 16-year-old Chinese student Ye Mengyuan survived the July 6 crash only to be run over by a fire truck while she was covered in firefighting foam.

Two of her classmates died in the crash, which left dozens of other people injured.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe sent out an e-mail with his decision Friday. The name of the firefighter has not been released.

“I have concluded that there is no criminal culpability for any individual involved in the response to the airline crash,”  Wagstaffe said in his e-mail. “The death of 16 year old Le Mangyuan was a tragic accident that did not involve any violation of our criminal laws.”

Wagstaffe said his office now considers the case closed.
