LAS VEGAS, Nevada (February 26, 2013) – A woman was hit by a car while she was walking on the sidewalk of Valley View Boulevard near Sahara Avenue. The woman has been identified by the Clark County coroner as 52-year-old Brenda Kay Smiley. The driver of the vehicle fled the scene and was later found and arrested for hit-and-run as well as DUI.
