BARNSTABLE, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts woman has pleaded not guilty to charges in connection with a fatal hit-and-run.
The Cape Cod Times reports that 33-year-old Sarah Hunt, of Barnstable, pleaded not guilty Monday to motor vehicle homicide, leaving the scene of a death and an open container violation.
Hunt turned herself in Saturday after police asked for the public’s help in finding the driver involved in a crash Friday that killed 62-year-old John Pina.
Police say Pina was hit as he attempted to cross Route 28. They say Hunt stopped, then got back in her vehicle and drove away.
