A minivan crashed through three Little League fields at Ed Radice Park in Citrus Park April 16. There were no injuries.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is ready to close its investigation of what has been described as a freak accident at a Little League park.

Peter James Lewis, 22, of Tampa drove a minivan across three occupied fields at Ed Radice Park in Citrus Park in April. The Sheriff's Office maintained this week that a blown tire and undisclosed health issues caused the accident and that Lewis will not face charges.

No one was injured, but some parents doubted whether the crash was entirely accidental and insisted that the Sheriff's Office investigate further. Additional investigation hasn't changed the findings, Sheriff's Office spokesman Larry McKinnon said.

The department planned to meet with Little League parents this week after press time to discuss its decision to close the case.
