Actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson's husband Justin Mikita will not be prosecuted after he was involved in a car crash which killed Kirstie Alley's future son-in-law.

Mikita was driving in Los Angeles in November (14) when he attempted to make a left turn and collided with an oncoming motorcycle ridden by Nick Trela.

The 23 year old, who was engaged to Alley's daughter Lillie Price Stevenson, died from his injuries, but the Los Angeles City Attorney has since declined to charge Mikita with vehicular manslaughter after determining Trela was partly to blame for speeding, according to

However, Mikita's legal woes are not over - the victim's family is suing him over the deadly crash.

A statement issued by Mikita to reads: "This was a horrible tragedy. I want to respect the family and the process, so I am not going to discuss any details of the accident or the complaint at this time."

Former Cheers star Alley recently opened up about Trela's tragic loss during an interview with U.S. shock jock Howard Stern, saying, "It's the worst thing that ever happened in our lives. He was clearly one of the most awesome men I have ever met in my life."

Lillie Price is the actress' daughter from her second marriage to Parker Stevenson.
