Greece, N.Y. - Greece Police Chief Todd Baxter says the driver who struck and killed retired Gates Police Officer Sonny Chung will not likely face charges.
Chief Baxter says the driver, 23-year-old Jonathan Rader, suffered a medical condition and blacked out. He told police he doesn't remember losing control of his SUV, or hitting Chung as he walked on a sidewalk along West Ridge Road June 2.
Baxter says Sonny Chung had just dropped his son off at the Sylvan Learning Center and was walking westbound down the road, so he didn't see the out of control SUV before it hit him.
The chief says police are still waiting for toxicology reports and have also subpoened cell phone records for the driver and Sonny Chung. But he doesn't expect that anything other than the medical condition caused the accident.
Chief Baxter says Rader did have a valid Maryland license and had just recently moved back to the area. He was on his way to work at the mall.
He says Rader and his family are very cooperative, extremely remorseful and are hurting for Sonny Chung's family.
