The Clark County coroner’s office has identified a woman who was killed in a suspected DUI hit-and-run near the Strip early Sunday.

Deborah Rae Broderick, 51, was killed when she and a man were hit by a car while walking on a sidewalk at 455 E Harmon Ave., near Paradise Road, police said. The man was seriously injured in the crash.

The crash happened just after 12:50 a.m. when a Dodge Challenger drifted off the roadway. The Dodge’s driver, 47-year-old Anthony Rodriguez, was arrested by a Nevada Highway Patrol trooper just after 1 a.m. when he failed a field sobriety test near the 215 Beltway and Russell Road, police said.
