No harm was done to the ducks. While the investigation is ongoing, it’s unlikely that the 17-year-old driver will be charged with a crime, Rocklin police Capt. Scott Horrillo.
Horrillo told NBC News, “We still have a lot of areas and evidence to sort through, but at first look it does not look like there’s going to be any criminal negligence.”
Placer County Sheriff’s official Casey Rivara, 41, was the victim. A 12-year-old child told NBC Sacramento station KCRA that the tragedy occurred in front of neighbors who praised Rivara for her kind actions.
The youngster described, “He got out of the car and was shooing the ducks and everyone was clapping because he was being really nice.”
“He helped them get up over the curb because all the little baby duckies were having trouble and then he walked in front of our car.”
