Lakeisha N. Holloway, 24, has been identified as the driver in a crash that killed one person and injured 35 on Sunday evening in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Holloway had a 3-year-old in the car with her when she purposefully hit people on the sidewalk of the Las Vegas strip. The child was not injured.

Police believe Holloway had been in Nevada for a week and was living out of her car, estranged from the father of her daughter.

No official motive has been given for the rampage, but sources say it was intentional.

Holloway was arrested on charges of murder with use of a deadly weapon, child abuse or neglect, and duty to stop at the scene of an accident, the New York Daily News reports.

Jessica Valenzuela, 32, was identified as the victim who died in the crash. She was from Buckeye, Arizona.
