A lawyer entered a not guilty plea Thursday for a former New Trier High School student charged in a hit-and-run crash in Winnetka.

Eighteen-year-old Erin Hughes is charged with driving under the influence in the accident on May 14.

Fellow New Trier student Sarah Goone suffered brain damage. Her family says the 16-year-old is doing well.

Hughes is free on bond and is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing in two weeks.
