A San Francisco man has pleaded not guilty in the death of a gay pedestrian in the city's Duboce Triangle area.

Gregg Wilcox, 60, faces a misdemeanor charge of vehicular manslaughter in the case. Omid Talai, a spokesman for the district attorney's office, said that Wilcox had been wearing a walking cast on his right foot when he allegedly struck William "Bill" Cox, 59, with his SUV on September 6. Cox, who had been crossing 14th street, died later that day. Wilcox entered his plea December 13, Talai said.

Wilcox, whose bail had been set at $10,000 and is out of custody, referred questions to Rafael Trujillo, his attorney. Trujillo called Cox's death "a terrible accident," but declined to comment further.

Officer Albie Esparza, a San Francisco Police Department spokesman, said shortly after the incident that Wilcox, whose identity hadn't yet been released, was driving south on Noe Street and turning left onto 14th Street when he hit Cox in the 14th Street crosswalk. Wilcox stopped at the scene, Esparza said.

The next hearing has been set for March 16 for pretrial conference. If he's convicted, Wilcox could be sentenced to up to one year in jail. Assistant District Attorney Mary Plomin is prosecuting the case.
