Bail $4M for Driver in Fatal Vegas Bus Stop Crash

By  | 

LAS VEGAS (AP) - A judge rejected procedural challenges and set bail at $4 million for a 23-year-old man accused of plowing a speeding car into a crowded Las Vegas bus stop driving home with friends from a bar last week.

Gary Lee Hosey Jr. wasn't asked Friday to enter a plea. The judge set an evidentiary hearing Oct. 19 on nine driving under the influence charges that could put Hosey in prison for the rest of his life.

Four people were killed, and Hosey and seven others were injured in the Sept. 13 crash during the morning commute a few blocks west of the Las Vegas Strip.

Blood tests found Hosey had marijuana and a little less than the legal limit of alcohol in his blood two hours after the crash.
