Mary Gelino, 66, struck and killed by hit-and-run driver Lemar Gant, 42, at North Nellis Boulevard and East Lake Mead Parkway in Las Vegas, Nevada
Investigators believe that a GMC truck turning right on Nellis hit an elderly woman, who was crossing in the crosswalk, Lt. Bret Ficklin told reporters at the scene.
On the evening of May 5, Mary Gelino was walking to her granddaughter’s 13th birthday party when police said a pickup truck ran her over in a northeast Las Vegas crosswalk, then left the scene.
Angelino said the arrest is a step in the right direction for her family to get closure. She said the family is planning on attending a hearing for Gant, which is scheduled for June 2.
