Texas Bus Company Sued Over Colorado Accident

| (Google+)

Texas FlagJust before Christmas I wrote about an accident involving a bus full of Texan tourists that had left eight people hospitalized, including an 11-year-old girl, while 38 other passengers had sustained minor injuries.

Now there is fresh news as this incident approaches the courtroom. KLTV reported a few days ago:

The lawsuit filed Tuesday in Fort Worth is on behalf of 9 Denton residents injured in the Dec. 18 accident near Gunnison, Colo., during icy conditions. The victims were part of a group from Trinity United Methodist Church in Denton on a ski trip.

Fort Worth-based Gotta Go Express Trailways Inc. and the bus driver, 48-year-old Fred Kornegay of Grand Prairie, are named in the suit. At this point, the damages sought remain unspecified.

Peggy Hainkel-Wolfe reports for The Denton Record-Chronicle:

The lawsuit claims that the bus company and the driver were negligent. The petition cites a reckless disregard for the safety of the passengers, including ‘failing to keep a proper lookout as a person of ordinary prudence would under the same or similar circumstances.’

Colorado highway officials originally reported that the bus failed to negotiate a curve and rolled over. Icy conditions of the road may have been a contributing factor in the accident, as well. As I pointed out in my original post, it is a lucky thing that there were no fatalities.

We will return to this story when there are new developments to report.

My daughter and I first consulted with Dan Rosen after a very serious auto accident. Dan had several phone conferences with me, and Tracie was available whenever I called. We would recommend personal injury attorney Dan Rosen to anyone!
