Bail set at $70k for driver in fatal I-15 crash

LAS VEGAS -- Bail was set at $70,000 for Wendy Carrion who is charged with involuntary manslaughter for a crash on I-15 that killed her 9-year-old niece.

Carrion, 22, made her initial appearance via video conference in Las Vegas Justice Court Friday morning. She is facing nine counts for the July 2 rollover crash.

According to Nevada Highway Patrol, three children, ages 4, 6, and 9, were not wearing seat restraints and were thrown from the SUV. The 9-year-old died and a 6-year-old remains hospitalized.

Troopers say Carrion was driving without a valid license and "neglected the safety for two of the six juveniles by not ensuring (they) were properly restrained." She faces several charges, including involuntary manslaughter, no valid driver's license, and child neglect.
