Lee County --  The trial of a Lee County woman charged with running down a man on U.S. 19 two years ago is put off until next year.  

Christina Purvis' trial for first degree vehicular homicide, DUI, and leaving the scene of an accident was continued until March.  

District Attorney Cecilia Cooper said conflicts with witness scheduling forced the court to put off the trial.

Prosecutors say Purvis was driving the Ford SUV that struck and killed 39-year-old Stephen Collins of November 18th, 2005.

Collins was walking alongside Highway 19 near Forester Parkway when he was hit.
