WAIMANALO, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The driver who's accused of fatally striking a 6-month-old boy in a stroller last year and then fleeing the scene pleaded not guilty Thursday.

The charges against driver Annie Akau include causing an accident that resulted in death or serious bodily injury, negligent homicide and driving without a license. Her bail has been set at $25,000.

Her trial is set to start in December.

The deadly Waimanalo crash on Dec. 5 happened about 7 p.m., as a family of four was walking in a crosswalk on Kalanianaole Highway.

The 6-month-old's brother, 3 at the time, was seriously injured in the crash.

Akau was driving a white pick-up truck, and fled before police arrived, the indictment said.
