The woman killed when a car crashed into her on the Las Vegas strip was a 32-year-old mum-of-three.

Jessica Valenzuela died and at least 35 others were injured, including an 11-year-old boy, in Sunday's tragedy.

Miss Valenzuela's sister-in-law has since set up a Go Fund Me page to help the family pay for her funeral costs and transporting her body back to Arizona, which has raised nearly $30,000 (£20,253).

Police said 24-year-old Lakeisha Holloway has been charged with murder.

Lakeisha Holloway, 24, is expected to face murder and other charges in connection with Sunday's incident.

Police said Holloway had been homeless and living in a car with her three-year-old child - who was apparently in the car at the time of the crash.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo told reporters that Holloway may have been under the influence of a "stimulant" and had just had an argument with the child's father prior to the crash.
