Man Pleads Not Guilty In Hit-And-Run Caught On Tape

A Connecticut man has pleaded not guilty to manslaughter in a hit and run that was caught on video and inspired a morality debate.

Thirty-three-year-old Luis Negron appeared Tuesday in Hartford Superior Court.

He's charged in an accident in May 2008 that left Angel Arce Torres paralyzed and mute. Torres died last month at age 79.

The video shows Torres being hit by one of two cars racing down a street and people ignoring him as he lay wounded. Others did call 911.

Police say Negron confessed to driving the car that struck Torres. But Torres' lawyer says the statement was made under duress.
