According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on June 12, 2016, she was a passenger in a bus maintained by the defendant when its rear tires fell off the bus on Edison Avenue in Granite City. She claims she suffered serious and permanent injuries to her head, beck, neck and shoulders and incurred medical expenses in excess of $27,000.
