    The correctional officer was hit by a van Wednesday night while crossing the street near 29th and California on her way to work at the Cook County Jail.

    Juan Bello, 57, faces charges of reckless homicide, leaving the scene of an accident involving death, failure to yield to a pedestrian, driving too fast for conditions, and driving on a revoked license.

    Bail was set at $3 million Saturday for Bello, who lives near the Cook County Jail complex in the Little Village neighborhood.

    According to records, Juan Bello received court supervision in 2002 for a DUI from LaSalle County. Bello was arrested in September of 2009 for a DUI in Iowa.
