Lebanon police have completed their investigation into a two-vehicle crash that resulted in the death of a pregnant woman and the child she was carrying.

Police said no criminal charges will be filed as a result of the investigation.

Angelina Noggle, 19, was traveling between 30 and 32 mph at the point where her Dodge Stratus was struck by a Nissan Titan pickup truck at the intersection of Steckbeck Street and Jonestown Road on Dec. 15, according to police.

Noggle had failed to stop at a posted stop sign on Steckbeck Street, which had a single lane of travel that was wet and slushy, police said.

Witnesses reported that Noggle's Dodge did not appear to be turning as it entered the intersection, and would have traveled off the roadway if it had not been struck by the Nissan, police said.

Police said they believe the most significant contributing factors in the accident were the failure of Noggle's car to stop at the stop sign and the speed of the Dodge as it entered the intersection.

Noggle was nine months pregnant. Her baby boy was successfully delivered at a hospital but died several days later.
