DETROIT — Three passengers aboard a Greyhound bus that rolled over and crashed in Ohio have filed a federal civil suit against the company.
Prominent suburban-Detroit lawyer Geoffrey Fieger is representing Rayvar Williams of Detroit; Lorianne Stevens of Halladay, Tenn.; and Tyrone Allen of Winston-Salem, N.C.
The lawsuit says Greyhound was negligent and inflicted emotional distress. It was filed Friday and requests a jury trial.
The bus was carrying 51 passengers from Cincinnati to Detroit when it ran off Interstate 75 about 25 miles north of Cincinnati about 4 a.m. Sept. 14.
