There will be no trial for a former Smith County employee accused of killing a man in a drunk driving crash.  The Travis County District Attorney confirmed Mary Dodgen, 62 passed away in Austin early Friday morning from cancer.  Dodgen used to be Smith County's jury coordinator.  

Police arrested Dodgen in July of 2006 after they say she plowed her car into a crowd leaving a concert in Austin.  One of those pedestrians, Austin attorney Jeff Wilson, 32 later died.  Because of her battle with cancer, Dodgen missed several court appearences.
