ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - The man accused of causing two crashes and critically injuring a four-year-old girl will be monitored closely as the case continues.
According to witnesses, Jesus Holguin, 47, first hit a car near Georgia and Eastern, took off and ran a stop sign then hit another vehicle ejecting a little girl inside that car.
Holguin has been accused of causing great bodily harm by vehicle and in a court appearance Saturday, a judge ruled he will be allowed to stay out on the bond he has already posted but must wear an ankle bracelet to detect alcohol or drugs. There is nothing in the criminal complaint that says police suspect alcohol or drugs were a factor.
The girl suffered a fractured skull and brain hemorrhage but is expected to survive and remains in critical condition.
