Georgia Woman Files Suit In Indiana Megabus Crash

SEYMOUR, Ind. (AP) _ A Georgia woman injured when a double-decker bus crashed in southern Indiana is suing Megabus and other defendants.

Dyrell Lee of Hamilton, Georgia, filed the lawsuit last week in Cook County Circuit Court in Illinois against Coach Leasing Inc., Coach U.S.A. Inc., Megabus Southeast LLC and Megabus U.S.A. LLC.

Lee's Chicago attorney, Tom Zimmerman, says she's suing over medical bills and lost wages stemming from the injured shoulder, concussion, bruising and cuts she sustained in the Dec. 20 crash.

Megabus spokesman Sean Hughes tells The (Seymour) Tribune (http://bit.ly/1JZWvAw ) the company hasn't seen the lawsuit and has no comment.

The bus operated by Megabus was carrying 68 passengers and traveling from Chicago to Atlanta when it slid off Interstate 65 in Seymour and rolled onto its side, injuring 24 people.
