A Brighton District Court judge today ordered Cathy Bergin-August, 48, to surrender her driver's license at least until her trial on charges she nearly killed a father putting his infant son in a car seat on Cambridge Street, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney's office.
Bergin-August was also ordered to pay $1,000 bail after pleading not guilty to charges of negligent operation of a motor vehicle and leaving the scene of an accident causing personal injury, the DA's office says.
Bergin-August is charged with hitting the man - at Mass. General Hospital following brain surgery - around 8 a.m. yesterday, the DA's office says, adding:
Bergin-August's vehicle was transported to Boston Police headquarters with front end damage and a cracked windshield; a routine inventory of the vehicle turned up a bottle of prescription sedatives with a label warning users to use caution when operating machinery.
