The Nevada Highway Patrol is asking for the public's help to provide more information about a hit-and-run crash on March 9.

Around 1:50 p.m., witnesses the suspect was involved in a road rage with a victim driving a blue Toyota Scion. The suspect's vehicle struck the Toyota on the 215 beltway just north of the U.S. 95 ramps causing a 3-car crash.

The suspect never stopped at the scene and continued eastbound on the 215 beltway. Two victims were taken to the hospital for serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Troopers say the suspect is described as a white female with blonde hair. She was driving a gray or black 4-door passenger car. The vehicle should have light to moderate damage on the left side.

Anyone with information about this incident should contact Trooper G. Liedkie at 702-432-4424 or dial *NHP from your mobile device.
