A 22-year-old woman killed in a Saturday hit-and-run collision has been identified.
Destiny Jackson died of multiple blunt force injuries, the Clark County coroner’s office said Monday. Her death was ruled an accident.
A manager at a convenience store found Jackson’s body lying on the rocks in front of the business early Saturday morning, the Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement.
Police believe Jackson was crossing Charleston Boulevard outside of a crosswalk near Rampart Boulevard just before 8 a.m. when she was hit by a 2003 Dodge Ram pickup that fled the scene.
The suspect, Richard Modolo, 69, was arrested on Saturday and faces a charge of failure to stop at the scene of an accident resulting in death, according to jail records.
A hearing was scheduled for Tuesday morning.
