Sam's friend, Luke Wheel, who was cycling alongside him, was also hit and suffered several broken bones.
The boys had been cycling to their homes in Gilberdyke after visiting friends in Howden when the crash happened close to the Rose And Crown pub at 8.50pm on September 6.
Ms Butler, of Knedlington, near Howden, is facing two other charges of failing to stop at the scene of a collision and failing to report a collision.
She will appear at Hull Crown Court on April 8.
EAST YORKS: A 52-year-old woman was assaulted by a man who pursued her and her husband in their car following a minor road collision.
Police say it happened between 8.30am and 9am on Sunday, February 24, on Queen's Gardens in Hornsea.
The police said the couple had been driving in Hornsea when a man in a blue Vauxhall Zafira passed them and the husband of the 52-year-old made a gesture to the driver, which seemingly caused offence.
The Vauxhall driver then followed the couple, a verbal altercation took place and it began to get physical, which prompted the woman to try to diffuse the situation.
It is then alleged the Vauxhall driver pushed the woman, causing her to fall to the ground, where she suffered grazing and bruising to her elbow and a lump to the back of her head, which required hospital treatment.
Anyone with information should call the police on 101.
