For Immediate Release


Corboy & Demetrio settled a case today for $5.1 million on behalf of the family of a man who was struck and killed by a Megabus in 2010 just blocks from the scene of yesterday’s fatal pedestrian crash involving a Megabus and Ms. Donna Halstead.

On Feb. 23, 2010, Wes Krueger, 64, was walking west on Adams Street and crossing Des Plaines Street in the crosswalk when a left turning Megabus operated by Shervyle Pruitt struck him and dragged him 30 feet before stopping.  Mr. Krueger died soon thereafter at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

Wes Krueger is survived by his wife Linda, adult sons Scott and Matthew, and several grandchildren.  Scott and Matthew are raising their families in Houston, Texas, and Linda had moved there months earlier.  Wes was preparing to retire from his career as Vice President of Superior Graphite in Chicago and had intended to join his wife and children in Houston in nine months.
