A man accused of hitting and killing a woman on Highway 200 pleaded not guilty to the charges on Monday.

Kerry G. Drew, 68, is charged with one count each of vehicle homicide while under the influence, negligent vehicular assault resulting in serious bodily injury, criminal endangerment, criminal possession of dangerous drugs, and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence, all felonies. He’s also facing one misdemeanor charge of negligent vehicular assault resulting in bodily injury.

If convicted, Drew faces a possible maximum sentence of 65 years at the Montana State Prison.

These are the Montana counties with the lowest crime rates per 10,000 people.

Drew pleaded not guilty to all six counts at his arraignment on Monday morning. Missoula County District Judge Jason Marks presided.

An affidavit filed in Missoula County District Court alleges Drew was traveling along Highway 200 near Potomac when he drove off the roadway and struck a woman in his Toyota 4Runner SUV. Two more people who were at the scene were hit and sustained injuries.
