New details are emerging about a man accused of driving drunk and killing a 16-year-old girl, as well as what police say he did after leaving the scene.
Bobbie Grayson died in a crash in North Las Vegas on November 24th.
“I go down to the living room, looking at the front door, waiting for her to come through. I'm just lost,” Grayson’s mother Kathy Cagle said.
Police say Anthony Lauria took off after he hit Grayson and left her for dead.
According to police reports obtained by 8 News NOW, officers used tire marks at the scene to track him down shortly after the crash.
“It was like he was supposed to be caught, and he did,” Cagle said.
Police say Lauria was found with shards of glass in his hair at a nearby home. He reeked of alcohol, and he told officers he didn't know what he hit, according to the arrest report.
“He couldn't be a man and stay there. I mean, really, that bothers me,” Cagle said.
The report also states officers found text messages on Lauria's phone. One of the messages allegedly reads, "Just dodged another DUI."
According to police, his blood alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit. The 28-year-old man faces hit and run and DUI charges.
Cagle and her attorney say they plan to file a civil suit.
“I can't believe what this family has been through,” her attorney Tami Vannah said.
Cagle thanks the community for its support. The family plans to bury Bobbie Grayson Friday.
The family has set up a GoFundMe account to help raise money for funeral expenses.
