Kuntz was charged with vehicular assault and DWI for her involvement in the crash. She appeared before Judge Jeffrey Markello.

In court, Markello said based on the research done, the proper thing to do at this time is to remove Kuntz’s license.

She has waived her felony hearing, moving this case onto a grand jury.

According to a police complaint, Kuntz struck Lily – who family named on Wednesday – causing her to sustain a collapsed lung, broken collarbone, a broken rib, and other injuries to her arm and leg.

Police are also investigating whether or not Kuntz’s car also struck the bicycle of a second child named Alex, who was uninjured.

The complaint also says Kuntz failed all field sobriety tests she was given and admitted to drinking and driving.
