SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — An aunt has pleaded not guilty to her alleged role in the fatal hit-and-run accident of her 2-year-old niece.

Loryresha Gage (cq) entered her plea to felony child endangerment during her arraignment in San Francisco Superior Court on Thursday.

Prosecutors accuse the 25-year-old Gage of leaving her niece, Mi'Yana Gregory, alone in the middle of a busy crosswalk while trying to get her nephew, who remained on a sidewalk, in the city's South of Market neighborhood late Friday night.

Authorities say when Gage went back to get her nephew, her niece was fatally struck by a white car legally traveling through a green light.

Police are still looking for the driver.

Gage is being held on $50,000 bail. Her attorney, Kevin Mitchell, told reporters that his client should not be facing any charges.

Gage is due back in court on August 28.
