As a Fort Worth Bus Accident attorney, I am reporting this bus crash lawsuit, which was just filed in Fort Worth district court.
A lawsuit was filed against a Fort Worth-based bus company on behalf of Denton church members who were injured in a Colorado bus crash in December.
The defendants are the bus driver, Fred Kornegay of Grand Prairie, and the bus company, Gotta Go Express Trailways Inc. in Fort Worth.
The members of Trinity United Methodist Church in Denton were injured during a ski trip to Crested Butte, Colo. There were 46 people on the bus, including the driver.
The group was on Highway 114 outside of Gunnison, Colo., when the bus went out of control, collided with a post and rolled down an embankment striking a tree.
Colorado investigators determined that Kornegay was driving at high speeds before the crash, including passing as many as three vehicles at a time on a two-lane road — despite dangerous icy conditions and decreased visibility.
Kornegay was issued a citation by Colorado authorities for careless driving in the crash.
