Posted on

The Clark County coroner’s office on Tuesday identified a homeless woman fatally struck by a suspected impaired driver.

Andrea Simms, 53, died from blunt force injuries and her death was ruled an accident, according to the coroner’s office.

Simms was sleeping in a dirt lot in the area of Eastern Avenue near East Silverado Ranch Boulevard. Police said Pearl Angob, 27, swerved off the road, over a curb in a 2016 Toyota Corolla and struck Simms in the early morning hours of Feb. 24.

Angob was charged with DUI resulting in death and failure to maintain lanes. She posted $75,000 bail on March 1 with the condition that Angob not drive and wear a Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring (SCRAM) device, court records show.

Angob is due in court on April 13 for a preliminary hearing, according to court records.
