A 27-year-old woman in Nevada is accused of killing a man in a hit-and-run collision, then allegedly driving more than an hour away to get her car repaired and checking online for news about the crash. Rachel Maria Terranova was taken into custody last month and charged with one felony count of duty to stop at the scene of an accident in the collision that killed 35-year-old Darrel Redhawk Pingleton, court records show.

According to a news release from the Nevada State Police — Highway Patrol, troopers at about 5:05 a.m. on April 28 responded to a call regarding a “fatal hit and run pedestrian auto crash” that took place in the separating area of the I-215 Summerlin Parkway northbound off-ramp and the I-215 Far Hills northbound on-ramp.

Police said that the suspected driver — later identified as Terranova — was driving a Honda Civic, from between 2017 and 2021, when she struck and killed Pingleton. The color of the Civic was not known to authorities in the immediate aftermath of the collision.

“Following the collision, the driver of the Honda fled the scene,” the release states. “The Honda involved will have right front-end damage.”

The person who placed the initial 911 call told the dispatcher that they came across a dead person on the I-215 Beltway, court documents obtained by Las Vegas CBS affiliate KLAS state. Investigators were later able to determine that Pingleton, of Alpine, California, was walking near the off-ramp at about 11:45 p.m. on April 27 when he was hit by the Civic allegedly being driven by Terranova. Medics pronounced Pingleton dead at the scene.
