Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The man accused of plowing into a bus stop and killing four people was back in court Wednesday, but his case was pushed back.
Action News spoke to the mother of one of the injured victims. She says she's frustrated by the legal process, but is more concerned now with getting her son better.
Lilly Jiang is happy to have her son, Shawn back at home. The 19-year old spent more than a month in the hospital and rehab facilities, but his recovery is far from over.
Jiang is still trying to make sense of what happened in September at the bus stop on Spring Mountain and Decatur. Shawn was one of 12 victims hit by Gary Lee Hosey, who has been accused of driving under the influence.
Hosey was back in court Wednesday, but he did not speak. His attorneys asked for his arraignment to be deferred until next month.
Jiang isn't sure she'll be there when that next court date comes. "I don't to go to court. I don't want to look at him. I only want to take care of my son."
She says Shawn doesn't remember the accident, and he gets confused easily. But when she told him what happened, he told her that he wants to help with his mounting health care bills.
The family doesn't have insurance. They have set up a fund at Nevada National Bank. It's under the name Chinese Association, #2104113. They say they''re thankful to all of those who have already donated and helped with Shawn's care.
