An 18-year-old Highland Park woman charged in connection with a fatal Labor Day crash may be behind bars for a couple of hours on Tuesday.

Carly Rousso was taken into custody following a Tuesday hearing where the judge set bail at $50,000, the Chicago Tribune reported. She is charged with misdemeanor DUI following the crash that killed 5-year-old Jaclyn Santos-Sacramento.

Rousso's family was expected to post bail on Tuesday, their public relations representative told the newspaper. Conditions on the bond include a curfew and restrictions on driving and drinking alcohol.

Authorities said she was driving the car that jumped a curb last week and plowed into a family walking on the sidewalk. The girl's mother and two brothers were also injured in the crash.

Authorities say additional charges may be brought against Rousso pending the outcome of blood and urine analysis.

Highland Park Mayor Nancy Rotering issued a letter to residents following the accident expressing her frustration at the pace of the investigation.
