Drugging and driving is never a good idea. Especially for the hapless folks who become targets of out of control vehicles driven by apparent tweakers. That's the lesson we take away after reading about thisheinous bus stop incident in Van Nuys on Sunday. We're sad to learn about this because we encourage people to take mass transit as much as possible, but this incident gives even this LAist pause.

NBC4.tv reports that a "50-year-old woman was arrested and jailed on suspicion of murder after the car she was driving struck and killed a 17-year-old boy and injured two other family members at a Van Nuys bus stop, police said... Evidence of what appeared to be cocaine or methamphetamine was found in [suspect's] car."
