LAS VEGAS (AP) - A motorist faces four counts of driving under the influence after his speeding car went airborne Thursday and plowed into a Las Vegas bus stop, killing four pedestrians and injuring eight others.
Las Vegas police say all the victims appeared to be adults, and the four people killed were apparently pedestrians waiting at the bus stop.
According to police, the driver survived but has a collapsed lung and possibly a broken back. He will be tested to determine his blood-alcohol content. Police say the driver will be booked into jail when he gets out of the hospital. There were three passengers in the car.
The driver and victims were not immediately identified. Sunrise Hospital said three people remained in critical condition Thursday afternoon, while five others were in good to serious condition.
