ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A judge is keeping in jail the man authorities say drove an SUV that crashed into another vehicle, sending it spinning into a daycare center where a girl was killed and 14 people were injured.
A judge in Orlando on Friday said Robert Corchado will be held in jail until at least Monday when the judge will hear arguments on whether Corchado can be released on bail.
Bail was initially set for $100,000, but a prosecutor told the judge that Corchado is a flight risk and that he should be held without bond.
Police say 28-year-old Corchado crashed his Dodge Durango into a convertible, which in turn smashed into the KinderCare building on Wednesday. Authorities say Corchado fled the accident.
He surrendered to authorities Thursday and was charged with leaving the scene.
