An Illinois lawsuit has been filed regarding a Spring Valley accident in which a man fell out of a moving school bus in September 2015, and later died.
The lawsuit, filed in Will County Circuit Court, is summarized in the Joliet Patch article of February 8, 2016 titled “Widow of Golfer Killed in School Bus Tumble Suing Driver, Bus Company.”
An excerpt from that article:
The widow of a man mortally injured on his way home from a golf outing when he fell down the steps of a moving school bus, then out the doors and into the street, has filed a lawsuit in Will County court.
Lisa Marchiando, the widow of Joseph Marchiando, sued Illinois Central Truck Leasing, Illinois Central School Bus, and school bus driver Nicole Sampson.
As seen in the article, Marchiando allegedly was standing near the front of the bus, and fell down the steps and out the door when the driver (Nicole Sampson) made a turn.
Marchiando died eight days after the accident.
Another article that describes the underlying bus accident can be seen in the September 29, 2015 bcrnews article titled “Man hurt after fall from bus in Spring Valley.”
An excerpt from that article:
Joseph Marchiando, 48, had been standing in the aisle at the front of the bus that was returning to Spring Valley from a golf outing, according to a police press release. The bus was westbound in the 300 block of East Dakota Street when it slowed to make a turn.
Marchiando apparently lost his balance as the bus slowed and fell down the bus steps and out of the bus door onto the roadway as the bus was moving, the press release stated.
Additional details regarding the accident lawsuit and underlying bus accident can be seen in a variety of media sources, including those mentioned above. An obituary for Joseph Marchiando can be found in this Joseph Marchiando link in the LaSalle News Tribune.
