SCR Medical Transportation Paratransit Services, a company that transports the disabled, has settled a lawsuit with the family of a woman passenger killed in a Chicago crash. The family of Ella Mae Williams will receive $2.7 million from SCR. The 58-year-old Williams, a diabetic who required a wheelchair, was killed in March 2013 when the SCR van she was riding in hit a light pole. According to the lawyer for Williams’ family, the driver, LeRoy Stevenson, claimed he swerved to avoid a pedestrian. However, the dash-cam video appears to show the driver falling asleep at the wheel before the crash. SCR holds a contract with PACE, a suburban Chicago bus agency.
