A Maywood woman has been charged with five felonies, including one count of leaving the scene of a fatal accident and four counts of failure to report an accident resulting in injury, according to multiple reports.

On May 6, at around 4:30 a.m., five people were in a taxi westbound on I-290 that broke down near the Homan Avenue exit ramp. The group got out of the taxi and started walking up the exit ramp when Klenshaye Little, 21, struck all of them while driving her 2014 Kia Optima.

Authorities pronounced Anan Ahmed Albalawi, 27, of Kentucky, dead at the scene, while the others were taken to nearby hospitals with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries, including broken legs and a concussions, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

The Illinois State Police located Little’s vehicle near the scene of the crash and arrested her roughly four hours later after a short investigation identified her as the driver at the scene of the crime, CBS Local reported. On Tuesday, Little’s bail was set at $50,000. VFP
