LAS VEGAS (AP) - Transportation officials in Las Vegas say they'll install a bus shelter further from the street after a 2012 bus stop crash there killed four people and injured eight.
Regional Transportation Commission officials announced Tuesday that a private owner donated land so the shelter could be placed 10 feet from traffic on Spring Mountain Road. The busy street is lined with restaurants, shops and parking lots that offer little room for bus shelters.
The Las Vegas Sun reports the $45,000 project is set for completion in June.
A speeding car that veered off the road the morning of Sept. 13, 2012, killed four people.
Driver Gary Lee Hosey Jr. pleaded guilty to charges of DUI causing death or substantial harm. He was sentenced to 24 to 80 years in prison.
