TEMPE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

A 31-year-old woman who was in custody after abandoning her two children at the scene of a wreck Sunday has been released on bond.

Christina Castanon was driving when she was involved in a collision on Arizona State University’s Tempe campus near University and Mill Ave that occurred around 2 p.m. Sunday. Shortly after, she got out of the vehicle and fled on foot to ASU’s campus, leaving her two children (estimated to be about 7 and 9 years old) in the back seat.

Castanon was located and arrested and was booked for two counts of endangerment and one count of hit and run. No serious injuries were reported and the children were turned over to their father.
