The family of a man who was struck and killed by a Megabus in Chicago in 2010 has settled its lawsuit for $5.1 million. On Feb. 23, 2010, Wes Krueger, 64, was in the crosswalk crossing a street when a left-turning Megabus struck him and dragged him 30 feet before stopping. Krueger died soon thereafter in a local hospital. Krueger is survived by a wife and two adult sons, and several grandchildren. It appears the bus driver simply didn’t see the pedestrian in the crosswalk. No failures in bus maintenance or driver training which could have contributed to the crash were proved at trial. Daniel M. Kotin, a lawyer with the Chicago firm of Corboy & Demetro, represented the family and he did a very good job for them.
