Alexander Maximov suspect after drunk driver kills 7 at bus stop in Russia.
Seven people are dead and three people injured after a drunk driver crashed into a bus stop in Moscow, Russia today.
The man, whose license was suspended in 2010 for DUI, was driving an estimated 125 mph, Reuters reported.
"As a result of a test that was conducted, it was determined that at the time of the accident the driver was in a state of alcoholic intoxication," Moscow police said on their website, according to Reuters.
The 29-year-old man faces nine years in jail if convicted.
The Daily Mail reported that the dead were all teens.

Police are also investigating the man for drug use.
He slammed into the bus stop, carrying it down the street before finally coming to a stop, AFP said.
Lifenews.ru reported the man as Alexander Maximov, a married father with one son whose wife had just left him.
He had just received his license again after an 18-month suspension and had been drinking heavily, his neighbor told Lifenews.ru.
The website showed Maximov with what appeared to be a head injury.
Lifenews also said Maximov's passenger, another 29-year-old man, survived.
The dead are three boys and four girls, although some reports suggest they weren't all teens.
