MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A Montgomery County grand jury decided not to return an indictment for last summer's wreck that left a Houston County inmate dead.

A prosecutor said Wednesday the panel determined no crime was committed when the three vehicles collided in east Montgomery on July 22, 2008.

The inmate, 39-year-old Terry Irvin, was killed.

State troopers said an investigation showed Houston County corrections officer Michael Shelley ran a red light and was talking on his cell phone at the time of the crash.

Shelley recovered from his injuries and returned to duty.
