MISSOULA - Missoula Police are continuing the investigation into the fatal crash that took the life of a Hellgate High School senior.
Investigators don't believe the 38-year-old woman was using her cell phone when she hit and killed 18-year-old Chance Geery.
Police say Geery was walking along the sidewalk with his girlfriend near the Missoula County Detention Center, when the woman drove up onto the sidewalk and hit him.
Geery died a short time after the crash, but his girlfriend was not injured.
Police say alcohol and drugs were not factors and at this time they don't know if speed was a factor.
Once the police detectives wrap up their investigation, the case will be reviewed by the Missoula County Attorney's Office.
