Passengers in Utah tour bus crash file lawsuit

Posted on October 20, 2010

LAS VEGAS — The Associated Press reports that Kei and Mai Maeda’s civil claims in response to the Aug. 9 motorcoach crash near Cedar City, Utah,  are the first and possibly the only that will be filed because the other Japanese tourists left the U.S. unfamiliar with their legal rights, the couple's lawyer said. Other passengers were critically injured, and the driver was the only occupant of the bus other motorists found standing afterward.

 

The lawsuit claims the driver, Yasushi Mikuni, smoked pot for three hours the night before and had to sustain himself on energy drinks and nicotine gum while driving. For the full story, click here.
