Aunt of toddler killed pleads not guilty

By From page A3 | August 22, 2014

SAN FRANCISCO — 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 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.

    Yeah, the driver needs to be found and arrested for hit-and-run manslaughter at least, the "Aunt" needs to be arrested for child endangerment. There are too many things wrong about this story. Stupid, tragic and sad.
