A suspected drunken driver crashed his truck into a bus stop shelter this afternoon near the Fiesta Rancho Hotel and Casino, striking a woman sitting on a bench, police said.

Metro spokeswoman Officer Barbara Morgan said the man crashed into the shelter about 12:40 p.m. near the intersection of North Rancho Drive and West Lake Mead Boulevard.

Police said the northbound pickup truck ran a red light and collided with another vehicle before striking the shelter. A woman at the shelter, the driver of the truck and the driver of the other vehicle were hospitalized, police said.

Police don't know the extent of their injuries. Metro’s fatal accident unit wasn't called to the scene.

Officers suspect the man driving the truck was intoxicated, police said.
