LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A woman who was killed in a crash involving six vehicles Thursday morning, was identified Friday.

The Clark County County coroner’s office said 32-year-old Donneka Harris, of North Las Vegas, died in the crash that also left three others injured.

Family members told FOX5 Harris was a mother of two and worked at a valley hospice center. They said the 32-year-old was the kindest woman they had ever met and made a lasting impact on everybody. 

The deadly crash happened in the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Warm Springs Road just after 10 a.m. Thursday.

A woman driving a black Mercedes under the influence, ran a red light and crashed into a Chevy Malibu, causing the multi-vehicle pile-up, according to police.

"This woman (Harris) was just driving and minding her own business, driving southbound driving on a green light and lost her life. Motorists just have to realize it can happen in the blink of an eye and it doesn't matter if you do everything right, it can still happen," Nevada Highway Patrol trooper Jason Buratczuk said. 

The woman, identified as 38-year-old Sarah Lee, has been booked into custody by Las Vegas Metro Police where she is facing charges of DUI above the legal limit and failing to stop at the scene of an accident, according to police records.

Family and friends of Harris, who was also known as Diamond Wiggins, set up a GoFundMe account to raise funds for her final expenses.
