LEWISTON, Maine (AP) - A woman accused of striking and killing a middle school student is denying a civil motor vehicle violation of failing to yield to a pedestrian.

Police say 54-year-old Laurie Young of South Paris, Maine, struck and killed 13-year-old Jayden Cho-Sargent of Lewiston in November. She was charged in January. Defendants can either admit or deny a charge in a civil case, and Young is choosing to deny it.

The Sun Journal (https://bit.ly/2nHHMmV ) reports Young could be fined up to $5,000 and have her driver’s license suspended for two weeks to four years. A district court judge says cases of this type are usually scheduled for a trial.

Young’s attorney says a court conference is scheduled for June 20.
