The Suffolk district attorney's office says 44-year-old Xiao Ying Zhou pleaded not guilty Monday in Boston Municipal Court to two counts of leaving the scene of a collision causing personal injury.

A 56-year-old man and a 48-year-old woman were struck around 2:15 a.m. Monday in the city's Chinatown neighborhood.

The man was found at the scene with non-life threatening injuries.

Police determined a woman found in the city's Dorchester section was the same woman who'd been struck in Chinatown.

Authorities say she was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.

It's not clear if Zhou has a lawyer.

She's due back in court Feb. 26.

Correction: An earlier version of this story misspelled the suspect's name.
