The suspected drunk driver accused of fatally hitting a 19-year-old woman on I-90 was in court on Wednesday morning.

William Nichols pleaded not guilty to aggravated vehicular homicide, driving under the influence and failure to stop after an accident. His bond was set at $50,000.

On July 20, the victim, Kiara Rodriguez, and two of her friends were driving on I-90 in Euclid when they got a flat tire. After pulling off to the shoulder, the victim, who was driving, exited her vehicle after checking to make sure there was no traffic coming. As soon as Rodriguez exited the car, Nichols, 65, drove by fatally striking the victim and throwing her body approximately thirty feet.

Nichols was administered a breathalyzer, with a result of .116.
