Why wasn’t the driver who caused the accident given a citation for causing the accident?

In Kentucky, the police do not determine who was fault in an accident.  That is why they say Kentucky is a “no fault state”.  The police do not give tickets to the person who caused the CRASH.  An auto crash is usually not a criminal investigation therefore the police do not file any charges.  This is different than many states.  For example, in Ohio a police officer will determine who caused an accident and give a ticket for disregarding a traffic light, stop sign, improperly changing lanes, by not maintaining assured clear distance or for careless driving for example.  Kentucky police do not do that.  Kentucky police will only give a citation if they actually witness the wreck.
