N.C. man, 2 others file federal suit in Ohio bus crash

DETROIT, Mich. - A North Carolina man is among three passengers who have filed a federal civil suit against Greyhound after one of its buses rolled over and crashed in Ohio.

Detroit-area attorney Geoffrey Fieger sued on behalf of Tyrone Allen of Winston-Salem, Rayvar Williams of Detroit, and Lorianne Stevens of Halladay, Tenn.

The lawsuit says there was negligence and infliction of emotional distress. It was filed Friday and requests a jury trial.

The bus was carrying 51 passengers from Cincinnati to Detroit when it ran off Interstate 75, about 35 miles southwest of Detroit, at about 4 a.m. on Sept. 14. The bus hit a fence and tree. About three dozen people were hurt.

Driver Dwayne Garrett was cited for operating a vehicle without reasonable control.

Greyhound spokeswoman Alexandra Pedrini said Monday that the company cannot discuss pending litigation.
