It's been two months since an Amtrak train crashed into a car on the tracks near Guadalupe, killing the driver and his one-year-old daughter.
Antonio Ortiz, 26, died at the scene and his daughter died a couple of hours later.
The California Highway Patrol says it just recently closed the investigation and it couldn't determine either way if Ortiz intentionally parked his car on the tracks.
A CHP spokesperson says the investigation was based on witness accounts and physical evidence. Unless some other evidence presents itself, investigators can't say the incident was intentionally caused. Because the car was not in motion at the time of impact, it's being deemed a traffic incident, rather than a traffic collision.
The report has been forwarded to headquarters in Sacramento.
