Fox River Grove Bus-Train Crash Settlements Exceed $25 Million

On October 25, 1995, a Crystal Lake school bus filled with high school students, crossed over the Metra railroad tracks in Fox River Grove, Illinois, and stopped with three and a half feet of the bus left on the tracks. As Metra train number 624 headed into downtown Chicago, the train collided with the bus, killing seven students and injuring many others. Corboy & Demetrio Partner Thomas Demetrio served as lead plaintiffs' counsel in the litigation and represented the estates of three students killed and seven injured in the tragedy. When the litigation was concluded, the total settlement for all cases exceeded $25 million.
