A parent accused of backing her vehicle into and killing a teacher at RHAM Middle School in March had her case continued on Thursday.

Elizabeth Everett was allegedly drunk when she struck 65-year-old Dawn Mallory, according to court documents.

She was due in Rockville Superior Court.

Everett turned herself in to police last month.

She was charged with misconduct with a motor vehicle and unsafe backing.

She posted her $100,000 bond and was supposed to appear in court on Aug. 12, but the case was continued until Thursday.

Since the incident, schools in Hebron have put up speed bumps and dozens of warning signs around the school parking lot.

In the past 10 years, RHAM teachers have said there were more than 100 close calls between vehicles and pedestrians during school hours.

Everett is expected back in court on Sept. 30.
