CTA Bus Crash
The family of a south suburban woman who was fatally struck by a CTA bus last week on a crowded sidewalk at Michigan Avenue and Lake Street has filed a lawsuit against the transit agency.
Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford said, according to witnesses, an SUV headed south on Western crossed the center line and struck a northbound #49 Western bus near 50th Street.
Eight people were injured in a bus crash late Monday morning in the Gage Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side.
A CTA driver was critically injured and eight other people were hurt early Sunday in a chain-reaction crash on the South Side that involveda bus, a squad car and other vehicles.
Two men were injured, one fatally, when the car they were in crossed into the path of a CTA bus and struck the bus head-on in the South Side Englewood neighborhood Sunday morning.
Two more women filed lawsuits Tuesday against the CTA, claiming they were injured when a bus crashed into a tree earlier this month on the South Side.
