According to the complaint filed in February, Pamela Jo Byrd's guardians claim she suffered injuries after falling backwards from her wheelchair while attempting to board the bus in March 2012.

Guardians Laverne F. DeMent and Frances D. Abbett blame the Madison County Mass Transit for Byrd’s injuries.
