Sheats is charged with two counts of vehicular assault, two counts of leaving the scene of an accident and three counts of DUI. There are three counts of DUI because he had a high blood-alcohol level, was carelessly driving and had two prior arrests.
Heather Surovik, 27, was driving in a white Pontiac sedan on Thursday when she was hit by a man with an extensive arrest record for drunk driving. Sheats, 52, fled the scene and was later arrested in the driveway of his home.
Her 5-year-old son and mother, Terry Koester, were also injured in the crash.
Surovik remains hospitalized. Her father, Scott Koester, told authorities she is "making good strides toward recovery - which will be a long road - but she is alert and talking."
Her son and mother were released from Longmont United Hospital. Authorities say both are recovering and Surovik's son is doing well and "playing like a 5-year-old."
The Boulder County District Attorney says Sheats' Blood Alcohol Level was .292 at the time of his arrest. That level is nearly four times the legal limit.

Sheats is not charged in the death of the unborn baby because state law does not allow that charge.
He is being held on a $100,000 bond.
