The report released Thursday, concluded the driver of the Range Rover involved in the crash was the primary contributing factor in the collision.

"The primary contributing factor in this collision was created by the driver of the Range Rover failing to give his full time and attention to the safe operation of his motor vehicle by not recognizing that the Cadillac was parked in the outside travel lane on 27th Street, and failing to change lanes and avoid a collision with the parked motor vehicle," the report said.

No charges have been filed in the case.
