LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas police say a woman has turned herself in after a fatal hit-and-run over the weekend.
Authorities say 33-year-old Las Vegas resident Elizabeth Meza came forward Sunday evening and was booked on suspicion of failing to stop at the scene of an accident and failure to yield to a pedestrian.
Police had little information about the driver who struck the pedestrian about 11 p.m. Saturday on Jones Boulevard, near Saddle Avenue.
But they did find the suspect's Nissan Xterra down the road a short time later.
The pedestrian was taken to University Medical Center and died.
Clark County coroner's officials haven't released the person's name or gender, but they say the victim was 60 years old.
