Jury selection begins in mother's hit and run death

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Jury selection began Monday in the trial of an Albany woman accused of the hit and run death of a mother of three in June 2013.

Prosecutors said 28-year-old Demetria Harris was speeding on West Oglethorpe when she struck 31-year old Natosha McCray, who was walking across the street.

She is charged with vehicular homicide, hit and run, fleeing the scene, and several other traffic violations.

Police say she carried Harris on the hood of her car more than 800 feet before her body fell off.     
Prosecutors said Harris then struck a building and a tree, injuring herself and her passenger as she tried to get away from police.
