A man who allegedly ran over a woman outside a radio station where a crowd had gathered to see 'N Sync singer Justin Timberlake has pleaded innocent to murder. Cameron Albert Duty is charged in the Sept. 9 death of 21-year-old Anna White of Bellevue, Wash., who was standing on a sidewalk outside the Burbank, Calif., studios of KIIS-FM when a pickup truck in reverse struck her.

Duty, 23, pleaded innocent yesterday (Sept. 26) and is in jail on $1 million bail. He was ordered to return to Pasadena Superior Court on Oct. 29 for the setting of a preliminary hearing.

White was pinned under the truck and dragged for about a block, police said. The truck then hit another vehicle before police pulled the driver over about a block away. Duty, who is from Los Angeles' Sylmar section, initially was arrested for investigation of drunk driving.

Timberlake, who was at KIIS-FM for a late-night interview, has agreed to work with the group Recording Artists Actors & Athletes Against Drunk Driving (RADD) to produce a public service video.

"The senseless death of Anna White yet again demonstrates the horrors of drunk driving," Timberlake said earlier this week in a statement. "I can only hope that partnering with RADD will raise awareness, and convince others never to drive after they've had even a few drinks."
