Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- All four of the people killed in Thursday's bus stop crash have now been identified.
Margoth Gonzalez, 65
Hyon Cooley, 47
Johnni Lee Garner, 49
Gerber Herman Ayala-Tomasino Jr., 24.
The four victims were waiting at a bus stop on Spring Mountain near Decatur on Thursday morning when the driver of a speeding car lost control, careening into that bus stop.
Several other victims were taken to nearby hospitals to be treated for injuries varying in severity.
Police say the driver was 23-year-old Gary Hosey. He was hospitalized before being booked at the Clark County Detention Center on four counts of felony DUI.
Family members and friends spent Friday mourning the deaths of their loved ones.
Johnni Lee Garner worked at Sunrise Hospital for several years, where her colleagues remember her for her cheerful spirit.
Hyon Cooley was engaged to be married. Her soon-to-be husband tearfully told Action News that the couple met years ago in Korea and shared a son together. Cooley worked at Treasure Island.
Margo Gonzalez was new to Las Vegas by way of Los Angeles and has no family in the area, but befriended neighbors after moving to her apartment not far from where the crash happened.
