VICTIMS OF ST. IGNATIUS BUS CRASH FILE LAWSUIT AGAINST DRUNK TRUCK DRIVER

NOV 29, 2022  (17H55)      JON
A couple of weeks after the St. Ignatius bus crash, the players - i.e. the victims - have banded together to file a lawsuit against Victor Santos, the driver responsible for the accident. Santos was confirmed to have been drunk at the time of the accident and had been reported for swerving dangerously beforehand.


Initially, Santos' bail was set at $75,000, as his blood-alcohol concentration was a .13 - nearly twice Indiana's legal limit. The accident left 16 injured, 3 of whom were considered 'critical.'

Santos was facing a Level 5 felony regardless of the civilian action taken, as well as 22 counts of criminal recklessness. Now he - and the trucking company by which he was employed - could be liable for added penalties as well, depending on the results of this court filing.


The players of the St. Ignatius hockey team have been provided counseling to manage their trauma by the school. Legally speaking, who knows how this pans out, but good on these kids for taking action after their horrific experience.
