LAS VEGAS -- The driver charged with crashing into a bus stop and killing four people told police he was in a hurry to get home because his girlfriend needed to get to work, according to the arrest report for Gary Lee Hosey.
The report details the hours leading up to the fatal crash. Hosey and his three friends had been at an Ethiopian bar at Spring Mountain Road and Jones Boulevard during the early morning hours of Thursday, Sept. 13. The 23-year-old told police that he consumed one beer at the bar. He said he was in a rush to get home after he realized it was past 6 a.m. and his girlfriend needed to get to work by 7 a.m. The car belonged to his girlfriend.
In the report, Hosey said he knew the speed limit was 45 mph but he told police he was driving about 60 mph. He said when he entered the intersection at Spring Mountain Road and Decatur Boulevard; he hit a dip in the road and lost control of the car.
A witness who contacted police said she saw the car go through the intersection and would estimate it was traveling at least 100 mph. In addition, a Metro Police officer at a nearby 7-Eleven convenience store said he witnessed the car heading eastbound on Spring Mountain at a "very high" rate of speed.
Police said Hosey had a Nevada identification card but did not have a driver's license and had never put in an application for one.
Hosey did give police a breath sample at the scene of the crash and it showed his blood alcohol content over the legal limit of .08. Blood draws were taken once Hosey arrived at the hospital. In the report, police said an officer who made contact with Hosey noticed he had bloodshot watery eyes, slurred speech and there was an odor of alcohol coming from his breath.
Some family members of the four killed and seven injured say they want justice.
"She was very close. She saw the car coming and she tried to get out of the way, but wasn't able to," said Winston Williams, the stepfather of one of the injured.
He said his stepdaughter was released from the hospital but had to return due to complications from her injuries.
The memorial at the site of the crash continues to grow. STOP DUI is planning to hold a public candlelight vigil Thursday at 7 p.m.
