LAS VEGAS -- Bus riders are calling for more safety improvements after a grandmother and her granddaughter were killed while waiting for a bus.
Metro Police say Leonardo Ruesga, 20, was behind the wheel when he drifted onto a sidewalk Monday and hit three people at Sahara Avenue and Maryland Parkway.
The Sahara bus is one of the busiest lines in the valley.
According to police, seven people were waiting at the bus stop when Ruesga's car came up onto the sidewalk. Three people were hit.
Riders call the crash ridiculous and tragic.
Grandmother Carrie Jones visited the scene of the crash to pay her respects.
"It's sad to see someone die, over someone drunk and driving," Jones said.
She dropped off flowers like many others have down since the crash.
Police markings on the pavement are a painful reminder of what happened.
