LAS VEGAS (KSNV – A woman suspected in a fatal hit-and-run accident Saturday night has turned herself in and faces charges.

Elizabeth Meza, 33, of Las Vegas surrendered to police Sunday night. She was arrested and transported to the Clark County Detention Center and faces one count of duty to stop at the scene of an accident (felony) and one count of failure to yield/exercise due care to pedestrian (misdemeanor).

The accident occurred just before 11 p.m. Saturday at Jones Boulevard and Saddle Avenue, just north of West Flamingo Road. A 2004 silver Nissan Exterra crossing Jones struck a 50-year-old pedestrian, who died about 90 minutes later at UMC.

Metro reported the Exterra did not stop but was recovered a short time later south of Jones and Flamingo.

The traffic fatality was the 42nd of the year in Metro's jurisdiction.

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)
