LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a teenager hit by a semi on his way to school last week was trying to touch the trailer of the truck.

The family of Jaylyn Lowe-Edmonds says the 15-year-old was hit a week ago at 28th and Dumesnil.

The semi driver left the scene, but police later found and interviewed the driver. Officers say he didn't hit the teen on purpose.

An LMPD investigation showed the victim was trying to touch the semi, when he was sucked under the trailer. Police say the driver had no indication anything had happened.

The Commonwealth Attorney's office has concluded the truck driver was not at fault and there was no evidence or reason to bring any charges.

Lowe-Edmonds was hospitalized, and came out of a medically-induced coma earlier this week.
