Syracuse men's basketball head coach Jim Boeheim is not expected to face legal ramifications after he struck and killed a man with his car on a Syracuse interstate highway, Onondaga County (New York) district attorney William J. Fitzpatrick told Yahoo! Sports' Pete Thamel.
"Not from law enforcement, unless something extraordinary or bizarre comes to our attention that we're not aware of," Fitzpatrick said. "In terms of a strict reconstruction of the accident, it's just a tragedy."
Boeheim, 74, hit and killed 51-year-old Jorge Jimenez, who was walking outside his vehicle on Interstate 690 after the car he was riding in lost control and hit a guard rail, trying to avoid Jimenez's vehicle.
"I am heartbroken that a member of our community died as the result of last night's accident," Boeheim said in a statement. "Juli and I extend our deepest sympathies to the Jimenez family. Out of respect for those involved, I will not be providing further comment at this time."
Speed, drugs and alcohol were not factors in the accident, police said.
It is possible Boeheim could face a civil lawsuit for monetery damages, however Fitzpatrick said, "In terms of if he'll be sued, I can't answer that."
Boeheim was cooperating with the police investigation, which is still active and ongoing.
