CHAGRIN FALLS, Ohio — A woman driver has pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from a car accident that killed an 8-year-old boy.

Christine Gregory, 62, of Chagrin Falls, appeared in Bedford Municipal Court Friday to face several charges including a felony count of aggravated vehicular homicide.

Eli Sachar, of Virginia, was visiting family in Chagrin Falls when he and two relatives were run over by a car at East Washington and South Franklin streets Saturday.

According to a probable cause affidavit filed by police with the court, Gregory said she didn’t see the pedestrians or realize she had struck them until she heard a woman screaming for her to stop.

She is due back in court July 28.
