Suit: Bus driver hurt man removing bike from bus rack

By From page A3 | August 23, 2014

FAIRFIELD — A man is suing the city and MV Transportation because he says a bus driver failed to see the man had partially removed his bicycle from the rack of the bus and drove forward, injuring the man along Harbison Drive in Vacaville.

David Crouch, 40, of Dixon, said his neck, back and shoulder were injured in the Oct. 28, 2013, incident.

A Dec. 16 case management conference is scheduled in the lawsuit filed Tuesday in Solano County Superior Court.

Dallas-based MV Transportation could not be reached for comment Friday about the lawsuit. Fairfield does not comment about matters in litigation.

    The drivers I've seen are in such a hurry around Walters and Pintail they don't stop for the light at Walters and will pull right out in front of you especially a large women that drives that route, then she laughs as you pass. She has been seen running stop signs on pintail, is this to keep the bus on schedule? If you drive in that area you might watch out for her

    Bob, "large" is a prerequisite for local bus drivers. "Larger" is their type after several months on the job. Running red lights and stop signs is no longer a crime. They have been added to the "unenforceable" list.
