LAS VEGAS (KSNV – Police are searching for a man suspected in a four-vehicle hit-and-run collision Wednesday night that killed a 75-year-old woman.

According to a Metro news release, a 1993 GMC Yukon was traveling eastbound on Charleston Boulevard just after 6:35 p.m., approaching the intersection of Arville Street. A 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass was traveling westbound on Charleston making a left turn at the intersection of Arville. Both vehicles entered the intersection, resulting with the front of the GMC striking the passenger side of the Oldsmobile.

The Oldsmobile ended up the sidewalk, hitting the wall of the Flex Bar. The front of the GMC struck a 2001 Honda Odyssey stopped in the left turn lane. The Honda was pushed back into a 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan that was also stopped in the left turn lane of northbound Arville.

Witnesses state the male driver of the GMC Yukon had a brief conversation with the driver of the Oldsmobile, then entered the Flex Bar. The GMC driver exited the bar out a rear door, fleeing the area to the east.

The GMC driver failed to remain at the scene, exchange information or report the collision to police.

The victim, a passenger in the Oldsmobile, was transported to UMC Trauma and succumbed to her injuries. The driver of the Oldsmobile went to UMC with moderate injuries.

The suspect is described as a black male adult about 6-feet to 6-2, with a thin build and two very distinctive shoulder-length braids or ponytails on either side of his head.

This is the 31st fatal traffic collision in Metro’s jurisdiction for 2014. The collision remains under investigation by the LVMPD Accident Investigations Section.

Anyone with information is urged to call Metro’s Investigation Section at (702) 828‐3128 or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385‐5555 or visit Tips directly leading to an arrest or an indictment processed through Crime Stoppers may result in a cash reward.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
