Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- It's been more than two months since the Las Vegas bus stop crash that killed four people and injured several others.
On Sept. 13, a car driven by Gary Lee Hosey plowed through the crowded bus stop on Spring Mountain Road, near Decatur Boulevard.
Hosey, 23, is accused of driving under the influence. He's in the Clark County Detention Center on a $4 million bond.
Zakiya Corner, 29, narrowly survived the accident. Emergency responders found her in the wreckage, in critical condition. She suffered severe head trauma and a serious leg injury.
Corner still needs to undergo physical therapy and knee surgery, but is forced to wait. She is behind on thousands of dollars worth of medical bills.
It's just one more far-reaching implication of the crash, which forever changed the lives of too many innocent people.
"I'm alive," Corner says. "At least I can say that. I will never forget the four people sitting next to me, who died. I have to try to pick up the pieces now, and get things back to normal any way I can. I've returned to work even though I'm still in pain. The bills from that accident are just piling up. It has changed every aspect of my life."
