LAS VEGAS (AP) - A 39-year-old Las Vegas woman is facing a felony reckless driving charge in a fatal multi-vehicle crash that was originally blamed on a hit-and-run big-rig truck near McCarran International Airport.

Police Officer Larry Hadfield said Thursday that Angela Bashay posted a $5,000 bond and was being freed from Clark County jail.

Her court appearance date wasn’t immediately available.

Police say Bashay was arrested Wednesday after crash investigators determined she was driving a 2011 Honda Pilot more than 80 mph before the Aug. 10 crash killed 39-year-old Christine Robinson of Las Vegas.

The fatal reckless driving charge carries a possible one-to-six year prison sentence.

Police say Bashay and another driver received minor injuries in the five-vehicle wreck on Sunset Road near Paradise road.

The truck and driver were found not to have been involved.


This story corrects arrest date was Wednesday, not Monday, and clarifies that the possible prison sentence is one-to-six years.
