LAS VEGAS – A woman with her 3-year-old daughter in the car smashed into crowds of visitors on the Las Vegas Strip, then drove to a hotel and told a valet to call 911 after killing a woman from Arizona and injuring dozens of others, authorities said Monday.
She faces a charge of murder with a deadly weapon and is being held without bail, prosecutors say. District Attorney Steve Wolfson said he also is considering a slew of other charges.
“When a person drives a 2,000-pound-plus motor vehicle intentionally onto a sidewalk, killing and injuring scores of people, that’s murder,” Wolfson said.
At least 35 people injured in the crash were taken to hospitals, including three people still in critical condition with head injuries, officials said
The crash killed Jessica Valenzuela, 32, of Buckeye, Arizona, according to Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg. The suburban Phoenix woman was visiting Las Vegas with her husband.
I think the car is at fault. I hope Obama sends the Attorney General to Las Vegas to investigate how a car did this. We need more car control. Did the crazy driver pass a background check when she bought the “bad” car? Maybe this type of car (sedan? minivan?) should be banned for the good of the children?
Since the left wing extremists blame the gun when a criminal/terrorist/lunatic shoots people, they should be consistent and blame the car for this CARnage.
