MATTHEWS, N.C. - The driver of an ATV that accidentally struck and killed a Matthews teenager will not face charges.

Evan Wolfe, 15, was hit and killed by an ATV outside Covenant Day School last Tuesday.

Investigators presented the case to the Mecklenburg County District Attorney’s Office on Monday.  According to the Matthews Police Department, no criminal charges will be filed.

The driver of the ATV has been identified as 43-year-old Patrick O. Keaton of Mint Hill. He is involved in the youth ministry at the church.

Keaton was on his way from the high school to the church across the street when the accident happened.  Keaton told police he did not see Wolfe because it was raining so hard.
