. A vehicle driver thought in a hit-and-run crash Thursday that eliminated a pedestrian in the main valley has been jailed, according to City Police.
Amy McDermott, 36, was nabbed today, cops stated, but additional info about her arrest was not instantly offered.
Officers and medics reacted about 9:25 a.m. Thursday to St. Louis Avenue and sixth Street, where they discovered a gravely hurt woman, police said. The Clark County Coroner’s Office identified her today as Fadila Popovic, 60, of Las Vegas.
Popovic, who passed away soon after reaching Daybreak Medical facility and Medical Center, was strolling with her other half next to a curb on St. Louis when a black Dodge Durango hit her from behind, authorities said. The driver left the scene without stopping, police stated.
Detectives on Thursday afternoon released a vehicle description and today credited the neighborhood with leading them to a suspect.
“This might just be finished with the help of the neighborhood. Together, we can make a difference,” Metro said in a declaration announcing the arrest.
McDermott was being booked at the Clark County Detention Center, cops said. It wasn’t clear what counts she was facing.
