A speeding car plowed into people waiting Thursday morning at a bus stop on Spring Mountain near Decatur Boulevard, killing four and injuring eight others.
By some estimates, the car was moving at 100 mph when it rolled and slammed into the sidewalk bench and sun shade on the south side of the street, where people waited.
Some of the victims were torn to pieces, their bodies thrown dozens of yards from the point of impact.
The driver, Gary Lee Hosey Jr., 23, had to be cut from the car and treated for injuries.
He was released from the hospital on Friday and hauled to the county jail to be held on four recommended charges of drunken driving causing death.
