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.
