By Barbara Liston ORLANDO, Florida (Reuters) - A judge reinstated a $100,000 bond on Monday for a Florida man charged with leaving the scene of a car crash at an Orlando-area day care center that killed a four-year-old girl and injured 14 people, including one child who remains in critical condition. Judge Jerry Brewer ordered Robert Corchado, 28, not to drive and ruled he must remain in Orange County where the accident occurred or in Seminole County, where Corchado lives with his mother and brothers and faces drug-related charges in a separate case. Corchado testified he has $5,000 in savings and no close relatives outside of central Florida where his wife and three children also live. The second car, a Toyota Solara, jumped the curb before traveling through the parking lot and into the front of the daycare center, striking several children and stopping at the back of the building.
