2 Killed, 4 Injured After Car Plows Into LA Bus Stop

Updated:
LOS ANGELES (AP) _ A driver apparently fell asleep before his car plowed into a bus stop and Mother's Day flower stand Sunday, killing two people and injuring four others, authorities said.

The six were at the bus stop in South Los Angeles when the out-of-control vehicle struck them, said Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman D'Lisa Davies.

A 57-year-old woman was killed, Davies and police said. She was selling flowers and gifts along with another woman, who was pinned by the car against a wrought iron fence until rescuers freed her. Police said the second woman, 41, had her leg amputated at a hospital.

A 26-year-old man died after being taken to a hospital, Officer Mike Lopez said. A 69-year-old woman was in serious condition, and two other people were treated for minor injuries, Lopez said.

Police Capt. Bill Sutton said the unnamed driver, a 21-year-old man, ``apparently fell asleep after working all night.'' The driver also may have been speeding, Sutton said.

The condition of the driver was not immediately known. He was arrested and charged with vehicular manslaughter, police said.
