At the scene, pieces of a Honda Civic were found, starting the search for the culprit.

Fearing discovery, Rachel María Terranova hid her car and began, according to court reports, to search Google for information related to the accident.

Finding no incriminating information, she took her car to a mechanic.

Three days after the fatal collision, investigators received a call from an automobile repair worker in Pahrump.

In the workshop, a woman had brought in her Honda Civic with front-end damage and apparent blood on the body.
