The Boulder County Sheriff's Office announced there will not be any charges pressed against the driver in an accident that injured Boulder triathlete Richie Cunningham, saying an investigation revealed the driver stopped to avoid another car and not because of road rage, according to officials.

Cunningham said he was disappointed when he was notified of the decision by detectives.

"I was pretty angry at the time, and I feel a little let down that that was the conclusion especially when I know exactly how that went down and what the driver's intentions were," Cunningham said. "I was a little shocked by the decision."

Cunningham also said he wasn't sure why Wolfe wasn't at least charged with leaving the scene of an accident.

"Maybe it was hard for them to win in court, I don't know, but it's pretty disappointing for cyclists," Cunningham said. "It's a bit frustrating, we have no rights on the road except when we do something wrong. When it comes to the opposite and we need to be protected we basically don't get anything."
