A woman involved in a fatal hit-and-run crash on Interstate 15 in early January turned herself in to authorities Monday afternoon.

Natalie Dawn Dubuisson, 31, was arrested at 2 p.m. at the Clark County Detention Center, Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Joseph Fackrell said.

She was being held in connection with two counts each of reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident and failure to render assistance, according to a criminal complaint.

Authorities said Dubuisson on Jan. 11 allegedly rear-ended a truck on I-15 near the Blue Diamond Road interchange, causing the truck to go off the road and roll over. Troopers said her vehicle then collided with a sport utility vehicle, which rolled and ejected 44-year-old Inaya Sabra, who died at the hospital.

Dubuisson left the scene, leaving behind her 2005 Mercedes Benz, authorities said.

The driver of the truck, Matthew Kedzierski, was taken to University Medical Center's trauma unit with serious injuries, according to an NHP affidavit filed March 1.

Fifteen days after the crash, Dubuisson and her attorney met with NHP troopers, who collected DNA evidence from her, the affidavit states.

Officials issued an arrest warrant for Dubuisson after her DNA matched evidence taken from her vehicle's air bag.
