The New York driver whose tractor-trailer was hit by a weaving Kerry Kennedy has pleaded not guilty to leaving the scene of an accident.
A court clerk says Rocco Scuiletti of Poughkeepsie entered his plea during a brief appearance Friday in North Castle Town Court.
The clerk says the next step is a trial.
Kennedy was charged July 13 with driving while impaired with drugs. Police said her Lexus swerved across I-684 in North Castle and swiped the tractor trailer.
The truck driver says he continued his trip because his truck was undamaged.
Tests found a small amount of a sleeping drug in Kennedy's blood. She says she believes she accidentally took a sleeping pill.
Kennedy, who has pleaded not guilty, is due in the same court on Tuesday.
