The driver accused in the deadly crash that killed a young married couple in Brooklyn pled not guilty to all charges Thursday during a court appearance.

Julio Acevedo, 44, is charged with three counts of second degree manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, and leaving the scene of an accident.

Authorities say he was speeding in the early morning hours on March 3 when he crashed into a livery cab along Kent Avenue in Williamsburg.

Passengers Nachman Glauber, 21, and his pregnant wife Raizy were killed.

Their child was delivered prematurely and later died.

The driver of the livery cab suffered minor injuries.

If convicted, Acevedo faces a life sentence in prison.

He is due back in court on May 31.
