A Massachusetts woman charged in connection with a crash that claimed the life of a 6-year-old boy in Westwood last November pled not guilty on Tuesday.
Anne Marie McInnis, 20, of Westwood, was charged with motor vehicle homicide by negligent operation, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon causing serious bodily injury, negligent operation, a marked lanes violation, and failure to yield.
According to the Norfolk Country District Attorney's office, Tuesday's appearance in Dedham District Court was a summons arraignment so no bail was set.
Neighbors said McInnis told them solar glare prevented her from seeing Eddie Thompson and his father Rob near the intersection of Pond Street and Lakeshore Drive on Nov. 19.
Eddie died from his injuries two days after the crash. His father was seriously hurt but survived.
McInnis will appear at a pretrial conference on May 22.
