LAS VEGAS (AP) - Sentencing is scheduled next week for an 18-year-old Utah woman on a felony leaving the scene of an accident charge in a crash that hurt eight pedestrians outside a storefront church in North Las Vegas last summer.

Clark County District Court Judge James Bixler on Tuesday set sentencing April 22 for Nyakueth Tear.

Tear could get probation or up to 15 years in prison.

She pleaded guilty Feb. 12 to driving away after hitting people late Aug. 8 outside Iglesia de Cristo on Losee Road.

A 54-year-old man was critically hurt and a pregnant woman was among the seven others injured.

Tear admitted stopping and then trying to drive away on the dark industrial street.

She was caught after crashing the car and running toward Interstate 15.
