AUSTIN (KXAN) - The Travis County Sheriff's traffic investigator examined the damage to the car Rosemary Lehmberg was driving the night she was arrested and determined she did not strike another vehicle, the office said Friday.
The investigator also examined the car that was in the hit-and-run crash reported in the area of the district attorney's arrest and found that it was not struck by Lehmberg's car, the sheriff's office added.
"There are no further leads in this case," the unidentified inspector said in a report released to news outlets. "This case will be suspended."
Earlier this week, attorneys Rick Reed and Terry O'Brien said evidence from a 911 call and remarks from the deputies involved in Lehmberg's arrest on a driving-while-intoxicated charge April 12 suggested that she may have swerved into oncoming traffic and clipped another car.
Reed later recanted the allegation when the 911 recording showed that the other driver did not take down Lehmberg's license-plate number as he had thought at first. He then reopened the possibility that Lehmberg might have been involved.
But the report released Friday said that there was no paint transferred from Lehmberg's car to the caller's car, or from the caller's car to Lehmberg's car. Also, the height of the dents on the two cars did not match up, the report said.
And the blue-tinted headlights described by the caller on the car that hit his were not on Lehmberg's car.
