CENTENNIAL, Colo. (CBS4)– The wife of Aurora’s fire chief appeared in court on charges related to a hit-and-run crash that injured two children in another car.

Adriene Garcia, 50, has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident with serious injuries and careless driving.

Police said she rear-ended a sedan stopped at a red light on May 14 and left the scene. Her Nissan Pathfinder was found about 20 minutes later.
