Feroleto Law, Buffalo NY

Canadian youth hockey Bus crash settlement

The  crash of a bus carrying a Canadian youth hockey team from Windsor, Ontario which killed four and injured 19 has been resolved in a $36 million settlement. Witnesses reported erratic driving before the bus swerved on Interstate 390, slamming into a parked truck, 30 miles South of Rochester, New York. Police suspected fatigue and inexperience of the 24 -year-old bus driver was a major factor.

Very complicated conflict of laws questions arose as to which laws applied to the Ontario company, Pennsylvania trucking companies involved for a crash which occurred on a New York Highway. The settlement will put some closure to this horrible loss, although some of the injured will continue with difficulties. More from the Buffalo News.
