Man Arrested in Hit-and-Run Crash

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police say a Las Vegas man has been arrested in a weekend hit-and-run crash that hurt two pedestrians and damaged two parked cars and a building.

Police said Tuesday that 28-year-old Mirsha Rafael Gomez-Barajas of Las Vegas was arrested, but they're still looking for a white 2007 Dodge crew cab pickup truck he was allegedly driving.

Police say the truck bore the license plate LVPD3.

Police say 28-year-old Rikki Lambert of Las Vegas was hospitalized with critical injuries, and 30-year-old Jeffrey Melloway of Las Vegas was treated for moderate injuries after the 10 a.m. Sunday crash on Russell Road near the Las Vegas Strip.

Gomez-Barajas was being held at Clark County jail pending an initial court appearance on a felony hit-and-run charge.
