4 dead, 8 injured after driver crashes into Las Vegas bus stop

The accident happened at 6:25 local time, when no doubt people were on their way to work and waiting for the bus. The car may have been going at least 100 mph. The driver, who survived and who smelled of alcohol and basically admitted he'd been drinking, has been charged with four felony counts of driving under the influence causing death. I feel so sorry for the injured and the families of those lost in such a senseless incident. And I have to admit, I sometimes worry when I'm standing at the bus stop (especially the one at the hospital, which is right on the road, with no kerb, and which is right at a right turn lane which many people don't so much as drive as veer into).
