FRANKFURT, Sept 19 German public prosecutors
have dropped an investigation into Daimler (DAIGn.DE) Chief
Executive Dieter Zetsche on suspicion of involuntary
manslaughter, they said on Monday.
The public prosecutors in Osnabrueck said there was no basis
to show board duties had been contravened in the fatal accident
involving a 27-year-old engineer caused by an intern on a test
The parents of the engineer felt the company should not have
put the intern behind the wheel of a fast car on a test track.
The public prosecutors had confirmed the investigation on
Friday but said then they felt it was highly doubtful Zetsche
could be held responsible.
