The Bakersfield Police Department says the driver who hit and killed an 11-year-old last month will not face charges.

In June, 11-year-old Fatima Lopez was hit by a car at the intersection of Stockdale Highway and California Avenue. 

She was taken to a hospital where she later died. 

On Friday, BPD said the driver of the car was not at fault and will not face any charges.
