The victim was identified as Dayma Roblero of Detroit. Two other children were hospitalized after Monday's crash in Grand Rapids.

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.

Police said Juarez and a passenger, Marco Coronado-Augustin, 25, got out and ran after the crash, but witnesses helped police catch them.

Coronado-Augustin is charged with resisting an officer and was freed on bond.
