Bus Stop Crash Driver Found Guilty

LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Nevada man has been found guilty of driving under the influence of prescription medications when he crashed his vehicle into a bus stop, killing one woman and maiming another.

A jury on Monday convicted 44-year-old Steven Murray in the crash that killed 55-year-old Patricia Hoff and seriously injured Porsche Hughes last July 7.

Hughes, a 27-year-old mother of two who lost both legs in the crash, testified against Murray.

Murray was an electrician with several previous DUI convictions. He didn't testify.

He told police after the crash that he took Percocet and Valium the night before to relieve pain from an old back injury. He faces 25 years to life in prison at sentencing May 21.
