Former Mount Si baseball player pleads not guilty in hit-and-run case

A recent Mount Si High School grad and former Wildcat baseball player today plead not guilty to felony hit-and-run in connection with an accident early New Year’s morning near Snoqualmie.

According to KOMO-TV, Cody Eads, through his attorney, entered the plea during his arraignment on the charge this morning at the King County Courthouse. Eads is alleged to have been driving a vehicle which collided with a 57-year old woman walking alongside Stone Quarry Road; she was later found dead in a ditch alongside the road.

Eads was a part of the Wildcat baseball program during his time at the school. He signed a letter of intent earlier this year to attend Green River Community College and play baseball for them next spring; what his current legal trouble means for all of that is not known. The TV station reported that prosecutors requested $25,000 bail, but a judge instead made that $10,000.
