The woman accused of killing a teenager in a hit-and-run on Interstate 24 pleaded not guilty to vehicular homicide charges Tuesday.

According to police, Tina Wilson was under the influence of painkillers when she hit 13-year-old Clifton Braunwalder, who was changing his mother's tire on the side of I-24 last April.

Wilson reportedly tried to speed away from the scene, but a witness followed her and helped police make an arrest.
