LOWELL -- A 33-year-old Lowell woman was ordered held on $25,000 cash bail after pleading not guilty to charges she was driving drunk with a suspended license for a prior drunk-driving conviction when her car struck and injured a pedestrian on School Street on Sunday night.

In Lowell District Court on Tuesday, Jennie Dul, of 87 Leverette St., pleaded not guilty to charges of OUI-third, leaving the scene of personal injury, refusing to identify herself, and driving drunk with a license suspended for drunken driving.

Judge Thomas Brennan set a cash bail of $25,000 in the new case and revoked Dul's probation - holding her without bail - on the prior drunk driving conviction.

Officers were called to School Street at Payne Street at about 9 p.m. after someone called 911 to report a man was struck by a car. Emergency crews treated the pedestrian, Jimmy Im, 46, of Lowell, for non-life-threatening injuries and took him to a city hospital, according to police.

The first officer to arrive at the scene immediately said in radio broadcasts that a white Suzuki fled the scene, and he broadcast that vehicle's license plate number to other officers.

Meanwhile, police found the white Suzuki parked on the side of Broadway Street, near Walker Street, with heavy damage to the vehicle.

Her next court date is March 18 for a pretrial conference.
