No bond reduction in hit-and-run
WINCHESTER — A Sterling man’s bond was not reduced Wednesday after he crashed into a house in the city Tuesday and then fled.
Juan Alberto Avila-Juarez, 47, is charged with misdemeanor hit-and-run, driving on a suspended license and no insurance.
Avila-Juarez — who appeared via video in Winchester General District Court, where his $5,000 secured bond was not changed — remained at the Northwestern Regional Adult Detention Center late Wednesday.
He caused an interior wall in a brick house, located in the 200 block of Cameron Street, to collapse after he ran his 1994 black Ford F-150 into the structure, according to Lauren Cummings, Winchester Police Department spokeswoman.
No one was home at the time of the 9:30 a.m. crash, and Avila-Juarez fled the scene before police arrived.
He was later apprehended in the 300 block of East Cork Street.
