JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The man who police say failed to stop his minivan at a stop sign and crashed into the bedroom of a 17-year-old, killing her, has bonded out of jail.

Ismet Sijamhodzic, 51, who's charged with vehicular homicide in the death of JaNay Jackson, posted $250,000 on Sept. 20. His arraignment is scheduled for Oct. 8.

Sijamhodzic was arrested earlier this month after a toxicology report showed he had Xanax and marijuana in his system at the time of the crash in August.

Jackson (pictured right), a Wolfson High School drum major, was ranked third in her senior class. Family and friends say she dreamed of becoming a nurse practitioner.

According to the police report, Sijamhodzic told investigators he hadn't slept in three days prior to the Aug. 28 accident.

He has a lengthy list of traffic violations and speeding tickets dating back to 1996, according to court records. Sijamhodzic was arrested in 2009 and was charged with providing alcohol to a minor.
