RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — The driver of the truck that hit an 11-year-old girl in the Raleigh Christmas Parade in November was released from jail Thursday morning.
The Wake County Detention Center said Landen Glass was released from jail Thursday at 11:49 a.m. to electronic house arrest.
He appeared in court Wednesday morning after he as recently charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of the 11-year-old girl, later identified as Hailey Brooks.
The appearance was part of a motion to set the conditions of Landen Glass’ release now that he faces new charges from the grand jury, according to District Attorney Lorrin Freeman.
He was previously charged with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle, reckless driving to endanger, weapons at parades, failure to reduce speed and improper brakes.
In court Wednesday morning, Glass was issued a $250,000 bond and electric monitoring, and is not allowed to drive a vehicle in North Carolina that isn’t properly inspected.
His defense attorney asked for reconsideration of a $100,000 bond, however, the request was denied.
Glass was also required to be tested Wednesday morning for illegal substances. If anything is found, his bond is expected to be doubled.
Glass is scheduled to appear in court for the involuntary manslaughter charge on April 10.
