When police arrived at the scene, Prado had allegedly left the scene of the accident, according to police officials. They said one of the persons inside the Eclipse sustained abroken ankle, a broken rib, and otherinjuries. Another man inside the car sustained two broken femurs and other injuries, officials added.
Pradowas booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility Saturday afternoon on a bond of $1,500. Jail records indicate she has since bonded out.
