NEWBURGH, Ind. (AP) -- Prosecutors in southwestern Indiana have dropped charges of driving while intoxicated against a driver whose car struck and killed a teen whose sled slid into a roadway.

The Warrick County Prosecutor's Office said it's waiting for a completed investigation before deciding whether to file formal charges against the 20-year-old female driver. The Evansville Courier & Press reports prosecutors asked Warrick Circuit Court to dismiss the charges without prejudice Wednesday.

The driver was arrested on a preliminary charge of driving while intoxicated following the accident Saturday night in downtown Newburgh, east of Evansville. Sixteen-year-old Davis Collier was pronounced dead at the scene.

She was a student at Castle High School in Newburgh.
