A Peyton woman accused of causing a wreck that killed a woman and a child last summer was arrested for violating the conditions of her bond, according to a statement by the Colorado State Patrol.

Arica Vlach, 31, was taken into custody shortly after midnight Saturday at a residence in west Colorado Springs, but state patrol did not say how she allegedly violated her bond.

Nicole Enderle, 42, and her son Alexander, 3, of Yoder, were killed July 12 when the Crysler Town and Country minivan they were in was struck by an SUV that blew through a stop sign, according to state patrol reports.

The minivan was traveling westbound on Judge Orr Road when it was hit by the SUV heading south on Log Road.

The SUV, a Chevrolet Trailblazer driven by Vlach, struck the passenger side of the van, forcing both vehicles off the road.

Enderle and her son were pronounced dead at the scene. Vlach was taken to Denver Health Hospital with serious injuries and arrested on suspicion of vehicular homicide while under the influence of alcohol, among other charges, after she was released.

Enderle's 2-year-old daughter, Zoe, who was also riding in the minivan, suffered minor injuries.

According to the state patrol's statement, Enderle and both children were wearing seat belts at the time of impact, while Vlach was not.
