SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- ABC7 News has learned exclusively that there will be no criminal charges filed in the fatal May 4 limousine fire on the San Mateo Bridge that left five women dead. According to sources with knowledge of the California Highway Patrol investigation, the CHP has concluded that there was no criminal negligence on the part of the driver or the owner of the limo.

The CHP is expected to announce its findings that the fire was the result of a mechanical failure next week. The California Public Utilities Commission tells ABC7 News it is waiting for that report before it considers imposing a $7,500 fine on the limo owner. The CPUC permit for the limo allowed only eight passengers. The night of the fire it was carrying nine.
