Ontario residents may be interested to hear that a city in Saskatchewan is facing a lawsuit after an accident that caused the death of a woman. The City of Regina has been named as the defendant in a case related to a fatal accident that involved a transit bus.
The woman was downtown at a bus stop in February 2013, and a sign was nearby. Reports say the bus hit the sign, causing it to become loose and hit the woman on the head. A coroner prepared a report that was released in December related to the cause of death, concluding that the bus brakes played a role in the tragic accident. A lawyer who is working for the woman's family says that he will be seeking to access records from the City of Regina in order to determine if the accident was due to an isolated event or if there are a larger number of buses that were affected by similar problems. He anticipates that the city will settle the case out of court.
