Bus Stop Crash Raises Pedestrian Safety Issues

A deadly car crash at a bus stop that killed four people last week has raised concerns about pedestrian and bus stop safety. Commuters waiting for a bus around 6:22 a.m. were struck by a car that spun out of control after bottoming out. The car was moving more than 100 mph. In the first six months of this year, 128 pedestrian were killed by cars across Nevada. In Clark County 95 people have been killed in the same time. What can be done to protect pedestrians at bus stops? We'll discuss how pedestrians can stay safe on Las Vegas roads.
