A woman charged with hitting an 11-year-old boy with her SUV and leaving the scene last July near the intersection of Stonegate Parkway and Creekview Drive, near Parker, pleaded not guilty to charges Feb. 5.
Kimberley Miller, who was 49 at the time of the incident, was charged with failure to remain at the scene after an accident, failure to notify police, careless driving causing bodily harm and operating a motor vehicle with missing headlamps. She will appear in court again March 22.
Miller is accused of striking a boy with her vehicle around 11:40 a.m. July 25, causing serious injuries, including a fractured skull, and leaving the scene. Investigators issued an alert and were notified by a community member of a white Lexus matching the description.
Douglas County deputies spotted the SUV driving on Ridgegate Parkway and South Peoria Street shortly after 8 p.m., and pulled Miller over for not having her headlights on. The deputy noticed the passenger-side mirror had been repaired with duct tape and saw damage to the front passenger side.
Miller allegedly told deputies she damaged the mirror while backing out of her garage, but didn't remember when that had happened. She also said she couldn't remember the name or place of an appointment she claims to have gone to earlier that day before the accident, authorities say.
Miller was taken into custody and transported to the Douglas County jail. She posted bond and was released.
A source close to the boy who was struck said he is recovering and doing well.
