LAS VEGAS (KXNT) – Investigators believe a 28-year-old woman may have been drunk when she hit another vehicle and fled the scene Thursday evening, leaving two others critically injured, according to authorities.
The crash happened at the intersection of East Bonanza Road and North Sloan Lane just after 7:15 p.m. Thursday, a Las Vegas Metro Police statement reported.
Authorities determined a Toyota Scion was traveling westbound on Bonanza approaching Sloan when a Toyota Yaris
turned left from the eastbound two-way center turn lane of Bonanza onto northbound Sloan in front of the Scion.
The driver of the Yaris, Victor Rios-Perzo, 63, and his passenger Rosa Lozano Rio, 54, were both transported to University Medical Center with critical injuries.
The driver of the Scion, 28-year-old Marissa Self of Las Vegas, drove away from the crash scene without offering assistance or speaking with police. Self and her vehicle were located near Bonanza and Eastern Avenue a short time later.
Officers said Self appeared to show signs of being intoxicated. She was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on felony hit and run charges. DUI counts could be added pending the results of blood tests taken after her arrest. The crash remained under investigation by the LVMPD Collision Investigation Section.
