The Legacy's driver, Jocelyn A. Bequette, 64, of Benton City, was not hurt in the crash. A drug recognition expert determined Bequette wasn't intoxicated at the time of the crash.
After reviewing video of the area, officers determined the Benton City woman had a green light as she headed south on Jadwin Avenue, and Cruz was crossing against the signal in the crosswalk.
Investigators have turned the case over to Benton County prosecutors for review.
Pasco police helped with the investigation, providing the expert to test Bequette and to record the scene.
