Las Vegas crash suspect told valet to call 911 after Vegas crash

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities say people jumped on a car and banged on its windows as a car plowed through pedestrians on a sidewalk on the Las Vegas Strip.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo told reporters Monday that 24-year-old Lakeisha N. Holloway wouldn’t stop and it appeared from video that it was an intentional act. Her 3-year-old daughter was in the car but wasn’t injured.

He says that after striking more than two dozen people, Holloway drove to a hotel and told a valet to call 911 after explaining what she had done.

Lombardo says police believe she had a falling out with the father of her child before the crash.

A drug recognition expert on the scene determined Holloway was under the influence of a “stimulant,” but blood test results are pending.

He says Holloway was believed to be from Oregon and had been in Las Vegas for about a week. He says investigators believe she was homeless and living in the car.

Holloway faces charges of murder, attempted murder, child abuse and leaving the scene of an accident after further investigation.
