Mother Settles in Bus/Trucking Accident

The mother of three children who were injured in a trucking accident last year has settled in a lawsuit in which she sued the corporation that owned the semi truck that hit the back of the school bus her children were riding in. The trucking accident occurred when a semi truck struck the back of a school bus carrying junior high and high school students, killing one of the passengers. The mother of the girl that was killed in the crash was a separate suit that has not yet settled or concluded. According to Star-Banner, the driver of the truck was suffering from a lack of rest and failed to brake in time to avoid the accident. The lawsuit alleged that the children suffered physical personal injuries as well as mental anguish as a result of being involved in the fiery bus accident.
