Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- One week after a crash at a bus stop left four people dead, a nonprofit organization held a candlelight vigil in honor of the victims who died, and those still recovering from serious injuries.
Stop DUI organized the vigil at the site of the crash, on Spring Mountain near Decatur in Las Vegas.
Family members of the crash victims spoke out at the vigil. They told stories about their loved ones, thanked the community for its support, and emphasized the need for stricter laws and penalties when it comes to DUI.
Stop DUI employees hope to get the message out that impaired driving ruins lives, and crashes like this one could have been prevented.
While victims' families mourn the tragic crash, the driver accused in the crash remains behind bars.
23-year-old Gary Hosey is set to be arraigned in court Friday morning. A criminal complaint states that he was under the influence of drugs and alcohol at the time of the crash. Hosey faces multiple felony DUI charges.
