The 6-year-old boy hit by a car while walking to school in Citrus Heights on Friday morning remained in critical condition Sunday, according to UC Davis Medical Center officials.
Meanwhile, the driver of the car, Tresa Bales-Sterba, 52, of Orangevale was released on $60,000 bail from the Sacramento County Main Jail. She had been booked into the jail on suspicion of driving under the influence, causing injury and driving with a suspended or revoked license.
Henry Perez-Rocha, 6, and his brother Juan Perez, 8, were hit by the car shortly after 8 a.m. Friday in the intersection of Greenback Lane and Mariposa Road while walking to Skycrest Elementary School.
Witnesses said the boys were in the crosswalk when the car driven by Bales-Sterba sideswiped another car at the busy intersection, spun out of control and struck the boys.
Henry suffered head trauma. Juan was listed in fair condition at the hospital.

What You Should Know About Comments on Sacbee.com
Sacbee.com is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)
Here are some rules of the road:
Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "Report Abuse" link to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.
Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.
Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.
Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand.
Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.
Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.
Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.
Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.
Don't flag other users' comments just because you don't agree with their point of view. Please only flag comments that violate these guidelines.
You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "Report Abuse" link to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.
If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them.
