Metro Sued for $100M in Wrongful Death

Gregory Schoenborn, husband of a woman fatally struck by a Metrobus, is suing the transit agency for $100 Million in damages. With the driver up on charges of negligent homicide, and witnesses at the scene saying that the driver was too busy staring at the cabs instead of looking at the road, it looks like he’s got a pretty decent case. The embattled transit authority is reeling from the number of accidents already on the books in 2007. With six fatalities in the system in just three months, Metro’s looking a bit beleaguered these days.
