Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Police are still investigating a crash that left 42-year-old Nneka S. Geter-Easterling of Las Vegas dead.

While loved ones are in mourning, the 17-year-old driving the car that slammed into her family has not been charged.

It happened Sunday morning near Tropical Parkway and Durango Drive.

"Nneka was a very bubbly person. She didn't have a mean bone in her body," said Sharon Martin.

Nneka was a hardworking, single mother of two teenagers. For the past year, she worked at Pulse Realty, and was planning to get her broker's license.

Just after 11 a.m. Sunday, Nneka was driving with her 18-year-old son and her 16-year-old daughter. Police said a Nissan pickup heading south on Durango crashed into her car, as she was traveling east on Tropical. 

Co-workers told Action News Nneka and her two kids had just been to church and were on their way home.

Nneka was pronounced dead at the scene. A family member said her son is at UMC with severe injuries, while her daughter may be released on Monday.

Police said the 17-year-old driving the truck was not injured, and it's not believed he was impaired.

Witnesses told police he didn't stop at the intersection.

Pulse Realty said it's planning a memorial in Nneka's honor, because she mad such an impact on their community.
