A woman has been charged with murder after a car crashed into pedestrians on the Las Vegas strip, killing a mum-of-three.

Lakeisha Holloway was also charged with leaving the scene of a collision and child abuse or neglect.

Authorities say Holloway drove into a crowd of people killing 32-year-old Jessica Valenzuela and injuring 35 others.

Holloway's three-year daughter was in the car at the time of the crash but was unharmed.

The 24-year-old is being held in jail without bail and will appear in court on Wednesday.
