A 19-year-old Las Vegas man accused of plowing into a restaurant last April and injuring 10 people says he'll plead guilty.

Victims who showed up to court expecting to testify against Gage Lindsey on Wednesday instead heard he planned to plead guilty April 24 to two counts of driving under the influence and causing substantial bodily harm.

Lindsey's lawyer, Sean Sullivan, says prosecutors plan to drop four other charges as part of the deal.

Prosecutors say Lindsey had Xanax and more than three times the legal limit of marijuana in his blood when he crashed April 1, 2013 into the Egg & I restaurant on Sahara Avenue.

Victim Alberta Guzman tells KSNV-TV she's grateful to be alive, but says her family has struggled physically and emotionally in the crash aftermath.
