Authorities dropped the charges Monday against the 26-year-old Allston woman in connection with Saturday night’s fatal crash in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood.

Ghuzlan Alghazali had been arrested and charged with two counts of motor vehicle homicide, one count of negligent operation of a motor vehicle and one count of unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.

However, with questions raised about whom was driving the vehicle at fault, authorities decided to postpone any arraignment as the investigation continues, according to Suffolk County District Attorney spokesman Jake Wark.

“We’ve advised the [the victims’] families of this decision and assured them that every step we take in this probe is with the intention of seeing justice done for them and their loved ones,” Wark wrote in an email.

Alghazali’s husband, Mohamed Alfageeh, 29, was in the vehicle as well, according to authorities.

The crash, which involved another car, killed two pedestrians, 27-year-old Jessica Campbell and 28-year-old John “Jack” Lanzilloti, a Brookline couple. Campbell worked for Kantar Retail; Lanzilloti was a productions and operations manager for the Boston Red Sox.
