CLINTON COUNTY, Mich. (CBS DETROIT) – Last weekend, police said 16 people, including children as young as 2 years old, were affected by a collision in Clinton County.

Six victims remain in the hospital, including one in critical condition, the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office said.

On Monday, the woman police say is responsible saw the inside of a courtroom.

“Please be aware that some of the charges and crimes filed here involve leaving the scene of an accident causing serious disability and death,” said Debra Martinez with the Clinton County Prosecutor’s Office during the arraignment.

Deputies from the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office arrived at the scene of a fatal collision Saturday evening. Investigators say Ashley Marie Monroe, a 35-year-old pregnant mother of four, was stopped by police a few miles away from the collision on Wacousta Road.

“There was an open bottle of Crown Royal in the defendant’s bag. She was the sole occupant and driver of the vehicle,” Martinez said.

Prosecutors noted that there were reports that Monroe was driving erratically both before and after the crash. Court documents show Monroe’s blood alcohol test was twice the legal limit.

“Looking at the dangerousness of the suspect and the allegations here and the dangerousness of the alleged driving on the date and time in question, this would, in the judgment of this court, require a substantial connection to ensure that society is sufficiently and adequately protected ” said District Court Judge Michael Clarizio. “So the court is going to set or guarantee bail at $1 million cash.”
