NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - North Las Vegas police say a Utah teenager accused of being behind the wheel of a car that hit eight pedestrians outside a storefront church doesn't have a driver's license.

Sgt. Tim Bedwell says Nyakueth Tear told police she'd been in Las Vegas for about a week, sleeping in the Mitsubishi Galant involved in the 11 p.m. Thursday crash outside the Iglesia de Cristo church on Losee Road.

Tear had a Utah identification card, but hasn't said where exactly she's from.

A 54-year-old man remains hospitalized in critical condition after the crash.

A pregnant woman and six other people were treated at a hospital and released.

Tear is jailed on multiple charges including felony hit-and-run.

She was arrested after crashing at a nearby construction site.
