PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Multnomah County District Attorney's Office determined it could not proceed with criminal charges against a tow truck driver involved in a crash that killed a cyclist in southeast Portland in May.

Instead, 40-year-old Jolene Friedow was issued a traffic ticket this week for making a dangerous left turn, according to police.

The violation carries a fine up to $260.

Mark Angeles, 22, was killed in the crash the afternoon of May 27 at Southeast Cesar E. Chavez Boulevard and Gladstone Street.

Angeles had graduated from Reed College a week earlier and was described as "well-known and well-loved throughout campus" by the dean of students.

Investigators said Angeles was riding his bike westbound on Gladstone Street, approaching the intersection with Cesar E. Chavez Boulevard, when the truck, which was towing another vehicle, turned left onto Cesar E. Chavez Boulevard.

Investigators said Angeles collided with the passenger side of the tow truck.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Friedow remained at the scene and cooperated with the investigation, according to police.
