Kansas District Settles Lawsuit Over Fatal Bus Crash

KSAL StaffSeptember 18, 2013

A southeast Kansas school district has settled a lawsuit over the death of a motorist in a crash with a school bus last year.

The Parsons Sun reports the family of 34-year-old Andrew Simmons and Altamont-based USD 506 agreed to the $500,000 settlement on Tuesday. The Edna man was married and had five children.

Simmons was killed in February 2012 when a school bus collided with the SUV he was driving in an intersection about four miles south of Altamont.

The family sued the school district in Labette County District Court, alleging negligence.

A lawyer for the school district says it does not admit any wrongdoing in the settlement.
