A Montauk man has been apprehended for fleeing the scene of a crash that left a  61-year-old pedestrian dead in Amagansett about four months ago.

Edward Orr pleaded not guilty Friday at Suffolk County court to a grand jury indictment charging him with leaving the scene of an accident with injuries, tampering with physical evidence and criminal mischeif.

East Hampton Town Police arrested the 30-year-old Feb. 7 for crashing his Jeep Cherokee into John Judge as the victim walked on Main Street on Oct. 23, 2012. A driver found the victim’s body near Hedges Lane and called 911, police have said.

Judge William Condon set bail for Orr at $500,000 bond or $250,000 cash. Orr is due badk in court March 20.
