MILFORD, Mass. — A Framingham woman charged with running a stop sign and striking an ambulance, killing the patient inside, has been released with no bail.

The Milford Daily News reports that not guilty pleas were entered on behalf of 61-year-old Lisa Zemack at her arraignment Thursday to several charges including motor vehicle homicide by negligent operation. She is not allowed to drive.

Police say a Mercedes Benz driven by Zemack struck the ambulance in Milford on Jan. 21.

The patient, identified as 58-year-old Karen Scott of Upton, lying in a stretcher, went into cardiac arrest and died. She was returning to a nursing center after receiving dialysis.

Zemack previously told police that she did not see the stop sign. Neither she nor her lawyer commented outside court.
