DENVER (CBS4) – The suspect in a hit-and-run accident that seriously injured an East High School is out on bond.

Police believe Erin Jackson, 31, was behind the wheel of a Chevy Malibu that went through a red light at Colfax and Elizabeth Wednesday morning and struck Dee Bridgeman, 16. Bridgeman is a junior at East High School, which is located by the intersection.

Jackson turned herself in to police early Thursday morning and made her first court appearance Friday morning. She sobbed at the court hearing where bond was posted at $25,000.

A halo cam caught the crash on tape.

Jackson is a teacher at Axl Academy Public Charter School in Aurora.

Bridgeman is still in the hospital with serious head injuries.
