Junkert says she saw the Gunsolleys’ vehicle on the side of the road, and the next thing she knew, two pedestrians were in the crosswalk.

Junkert said she had a green light at the time.

She was booked into the jail Sunday. Prosecutors recommended Monday a $100,000 bail, but the judge ordered her release without bail.

Junkert is set to be arraigned July 20.
