Oregon DOT named in tour bus crash lawsuit

Posted on April 9, 2013

SALEM, Ore. — The Oregonian reported that the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) has been sued for alleged negligence following a tour bus crash on Interstate 84 last December that killed nine and injured 38.

The lawsuit claims that ODOT was negligent for failing to equip the stretch of Interstate 84 with barriers strong enough to prevent the bus from leaving the roadway; not adequately plowing and sanding the freeway; failing to warn motorists of unsafe conditions and failing to require commercial vehicles to take an alternative route.

Attorneys representing the estates of three people killed in the crash are seeking at least $10 million in punitive damages, injuries and wrongful death. For the full story, click here.
