LOS ANGELES (AP) — A woman who drove 2 miles through a Los Angeles suburb with a dying man on her windshield says she can’t remember hitting him.

Sherry Lynn Wilkins testified Wednesday that he seemed to fly onto her car in the 2012 incident in Torrance but the events were a surreal blur.

Prosecutors say 31-year-old Phillip Moreno was struck so hard that he flipped onto Wilkins’ car and punched a hole in the windshield.

Wilkins says she panicked and kept driving until other motorists told her to pull over.

Wilkins, a former addict who became a drug and alcohol counselor, wept and said she’d been drinking that night but wasn’t drunk.

However, prosecutors say her blood-alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit.

She’s pleaded not guilty to murder, DUI and hit-and-run.
