LAS VEGAS, NV (KTNV) - The suspect in a fatal DUI crash that occurred Halloween night has been granted $100,000 bail.

In a hearing Friday morning, a Clark County Justice Court judge ordered the bail for Justin Caramanica, the man accused of being under the influence after striking 12-year-old Faith Love as she crossed a Summerlin street while trick-or-treating Monday night.

The child was pronounced dead of her injuries at UMC.

Police report that Caramanica failed a field sobriety test at the scene of the accident but say that his blood alcohol level was below the legal limit. Officials are awaiting blood test results as they believe Caramanica was also under the influence of a controlled substance at the time.

During the hearing, it was revealed that Caramanica is on prescription pain medication due to injuries he suffered in a previous automobile accident. 

Caramanica has been ordered to pay $10,000 of the bond before being released from custody.

The court has also ordered that, if Caramanica makes bail, he will not be allowed to drive and must wear a scram device.

He is due back in court on November 10th.
