A 21-year-old Grand Rapids man has been jailed on a $750,000 bond, accused of driving drunk when he ran a traffic signal in his SUV, struck a car, killed an 8-year-old girl and fled the scene.
The victim is identified as Dayma Roblero of Detroit. Two other children were hospitalized after Monday's crash in Grand Rapids, report Mlive.com and WOOD-TV.
Byron Juarez was arraigned Wednesday in Grand Rapids District Court on charges of drunken driving causing death and failure to stop at a fatal accident.
The Kent County jail says there's no information on whether he has a lawyer.
Police say Juarez and 25-year-old passenger Marco Coronado-Augustin got out and ran, but witnesses helped police catch them.
Coronado-Augustin is charged with resisting an officer and was freed on bond.
