ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) - The driver of a car that crashed into a northern Ohio home and killed a woman sitting on a couch has pleaded not guilty to charges including aggravated vehicular homicide.

Twenty-four-year-old Adrianna Young, of Oberlin, was arraigned Wednesday in Lorain County Common Pleas Court. Court records listed no attorney for her.

Police say Young was driving to work on July 28 when she swerved off a road in Amherst Township, drove into a yard and went airborne into a home, killing 34-year-old Debra Majkut (MEYE’-kiht). Authorities say Majkut’s 5-month-old son was sitting in a baby bouncer that the car flipped over.

Officers say Young told them she swerved to avoid an animal in the road.

Young is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Jan. 6.
