Copy-The Latest: Suspect told valet to call 911 after Vegas crash

LAS VEGAS (AP) - The latest on a deadly crash on the Las Vegas Strip (all times local):

10:40 a.m.

Authorities say people jumped on a car and banged on its windows as it plowed through pedestrians on a sidewalk on the Las Vegas Strip.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo told reporters Monday that 24-year-old Lakeisha N. Holloway wouldn't stop and it appeared from video that it was an intentional act. Her 3-year-old daughter was in the car but wasn't injured.

He says that after striking more than two dozen people, Holloway drove to a hotel and told a valet to call 911 after explaining what she had done.

Lombardo says police believe she had a falling out with the father of her child before the crash.

A drug recognition expert on the scene determined Holloway was under the influence of a "stimulant," but blood test results are pending.

He says Holloway was believed to be from Oregon and had been in Las Vegas for about a week. He says investigators believe she was homeless and living in the car.

9:55 a.m.

A government official said five Canadians were injured by a car that crashed into pedestrians on the Las Vegas Strip.

Canada's Global Affairs department spokesman John Babcock said he couldn't immediately provide information on the condition of the Canadian citizens. He says Canada is working with local authorities to provide support and assistance.

University Medical Center in Las Vegas said it treated people from Montreal who needed a French translator.

Authorities say a woman drove a car on and off the sidewalk into crowds Sunday night, injuring dozens. She is in custody. She had a 3-year-old in the car with her, but the child wasn't injured.

9:15 a.m.

Prosecutors say they expect to file murder charges and other counts against the driver who crashed into pedestrians on the Las Vegas Strip, killing an Arizona woman and injuring dozens of others.

Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson said Monday that the vehicle could be considered a deadly weapon.

He said, "When a person drives a 2,000-pound-plus motor vehicle intentionally onto a sidewalk, killing and injuring scores of people, that's murder."

Wolfson didn't identify the woman in custody, but police have said that she's in her 20s and recently came to Vegas.

A 10 a.m. press conference with the sheriff is scheduled to offer updates on the Sunday night crash.

8:15 a.m.

Officials say a woman from Arizona was killed when a car plowed into pedestrians on the Las Vegas Strip.

Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg (FYOU'-den-berg) said Monday that 32-year-old Jessica Valenzuela of Buckeye, Arizona, died in the crash Sunday night.

The coroner said the suburban Phoenix woman was visiting Las Vegas with her husband. A cause of death is pending, with an autopsy scheduled Monday.

Authorities say dozens of others were injured when a woman behind the wheel of a 1996 Oldsmobile sedan intentionally drove on and off the sidewalk into crowds Sunday night. The driver is in custody.

7:50 a.m.

Las Vegas police say that video of a car crashing into pedestrians on the Las Vegas Strip "looks like it's very intentional."

Capt. Brett Zimmerman said Monday that the car was fully on the sidewalk twice, including once when it traveled for 200 feet. He says the car went onto the sidewalk first near a restaurant at the Planet Hollywood hotel-casino and then again at the driveway entrance to the Paris Las Vegas hotel-casino.

Authorities say the 1996 Oldsmobile sedan intentionally drove on and off the sidewalk into crowds Sunday night, killing one person and injuring dozens of others. The driver is in custody.

7:20 a.m.

Four college students from Oregon were among those hurt when a vehicle plowed into pedestrians on a sidewalk outside a Las Vegas Strip casino.

Pacific University spokesman Joe Lang says the students are members of the wrestling team and were in Las Vegas to compete in a tournament. He says 19 athletes and coaches were walking together Sunday night when the woman swerved onto the sidewalk.

The crash killed one person and injured dozens of others.

Lang says three of the four injured students were taken to a hospital. Two students were later released, and the other was kept overnight for observation.

He says the team won't compete in Monday's tournament.

Pacific University is based in Forest Grove, about 30 miles west of Portland.

7:10 a.m.

A hospital official says three people who were injured in a crash on the Las Vegas Strip are in critical condition.

University Medical Center spokeswoman Danita Cohen said Monday that their life-threatening injuries are being closely monitored at the Las Vegas hospital.

Authorities say a car intentionally drove on and off the sidewalk into crowds near the Planet Hollywood casino-hotel Sunday night, mowing down dozens of pedestrians. The driver is in custody.

Cohen says two others at the hospital are in serious condition. One person died there, and the rest brought in for treatment have been released, including an 11-year-old.

By 6 a.m., the Las Vegas Strip had reopened after being closed for nearly 12 hours.
