JACKMAN— Officials say charges will not be filed against the driver of a logging truck that crashed into a house in western Maine, killing a 5-year-old boy.

Fifty-seven-year-old Christian Cloutier, of Quebec, told police he fell asleep before his truck hit two utility poles and flipped onto its side against a house in Jackman in July, sending logs rolling into the house and killing a boy who was sleeping on a downstairs couch.

Assistant Somerset County District Attorney Brent Davis told the Bangor Daily News that the accident did not warrant criminal charges.

He said an investigation concluded that speed was not a factor. He said the accident was caused by the driver falling asleep, possibly because of a medical condition.
