August 31st, 2018 | by RON BELL

McKinley County, New Mexico August 31, 2018 – Yesterday, the nation was rocked with news of the horrific crash involving a semi-truck and a Greyhound bus near Thoreau, New Mexico.  Today, Ron Bell Injury Lawyers filed lawsuits on behalf of two victims injured in this preventable crash.

Initial reports indicate that a tire blew out on the semi-truck causing the driver to lose control and crash head-on into the bus which was carrying a reported 49 passengers.  At this point, 8 are reported to have died as a result of the crash.  However, dozens more are injured and some remain hospitalized.

The lawsuits allege, in part, that the trucking company, JAG Transportation, Inc., failed to adequately inspect and maintain the tire that blew out.  As the investigation into the crash continues, there may be additional factors uncovered which contributed to the crash.

Managing Attorney Bryan Williams with Ron Bell Injury Lawyers stated, “The gruesome details and images of this crash are difficult to absorb.  Especially when it appears to be the result of something that could have been prevented.  Many times these cases turn out to be the result of a company choosing profit over safety.  We fight to hold them accountable for that choice.  At this point, we are working to receive justice for the victims who have hired us.  Our hearts go out to all those who have been affected by this devastating crash.”
