A suspected drunk driver lost control of his fast-moving car and crashed into a Las Vegas bus stop, killing at least four people and injuring eight, authorities said Thursday.
The car, carrying the driver and some passengers, was traveling so fast through the intersection at Decatur Boulevard and Spring Mountain Road that it flew into the air then crashed into the bus stop, Las Vegas police Sgt. Richard Strader told reporters.
The car was traveling east on Spring Mountain about 6:30 a.m. when it bottomed out and went into the air, officials said.
At least four people were killed and eight others were taken to University Medical Center and Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center, Clark County spokesman Dan Kulin said in a telephone interview with the Los Angeles Times.
