how long do the police investigate for driving felony?

A intersection car accident:The party crossing the intersection received.....failure to stop from the stop sign & inattentive driving. The other party..no citations. There was no ambulance, no drinking. The other party some how, maybe not told the truth.....had their other ticket removed. The party who did not receive any citations went under some kind of investigation.....(.being watched) without any warning. The investigation is still going on. The car accident happened in Nov.,2008. Would the police be doing the investigating to prove a felony? If not.....who could it be investigating?

    It is not likely the other party is being watched with regard to that accident. That is simply paranoia. Cops do not have time to do that kind of thing. If s/he is being watched, it is for another reason. Charges can be filed against someone until the statute of limitations runs. I do not see any kind of felony here so it would be a misdemeanor which is two years - meaning that the statute has run and no charges can be filed.

    Anyone could be investigating anything. No one on-line will know.

    It is possible that this is a private investigator. This could be true if there is a civil lawsuit - the parties to the accident are suing each other. It is very unlikely that the police would continue such an investigation for five years unless there are other factors not mentioned here.
