Donneka Harris of North Las Vegas was struck about 12:15 p.m. Thursday when a suspected impaired driver, later identified by Las Vegas police as 38-year-old Sarah Lee, ran a red light while speeding west on Warm Springs Road at the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard South, according to the Nevada Highway Patrol. Harris, 32, was hospitalized at University Medical Center, where she died.
The Highway Patrol determined the crash, which happened while the SUV was speeding away from another driver it sideswiped farther east on Warm Springs Road, sent the SUV and Harris’ vehicle into three more cars.
Lee is being held without bail at the Clark County Detention Center, and faces DUI and hit-and-run charges, jail records show. She is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday morning.
