Three lawsuits filed over Megabus crash
This Megabus slammed into a bridge pillar along Interstate 55 near Litchfield on Aug. 2, killing one passenger.
Three lawsuits have been filed on behalf of passengers injured when a Megabus slammed into a bridge pillar along a southern Illinois freeway.
Clifford Law Offices filed a lawsuit Monday in Cook County on behalf of 19-year-old Jamie Schultz. Defendants include Megabus USA and the driver. Power, Rogers and Smith law firm says it has filed two lawsuits in Cook County: one on behalf of passenger Mary Jane Klein and her two sons and the other on behalf of passenger Lewis Vaughn IV.
The passengers were aboard the double-decker Megabus on Interstate 55 on Aug. 2 near Litchfield when authorities believe a tire blew out. One person died in the crash.
Without addressing the lawsuit, Megabus.com says the company is "deeply saddened by the incident."
