Lawsuit filed over fatal Megabus crash near Union Station
Lawyers for the family of a 76-year-old woman killed by a Megabus outside Union Station this week are questioning whether bus drivers for the company are being properly trained on the dangers of blind spots while making left turns.
Donna Halstead’s death on Tuesday while crossing near Canal and Adams is “remarkably similar” to what happened to Wes Krueger in 2010, according to Dan Kotin, a Corboy & Demetrio attorney representing Halstead’s family in their wrongful death case.
“Whether these are just coincidental tragedies, I don’t know,” Kotin said. “But there’s an awful lot of questions that come to mind that I think need to be answered.”
