More Chippewa Falls High band bus crash survivors file lawsuitsSixteen survivors of the 2005 Chippewa Falls High School band bus crash have filed civil suits.
Sixteen survivors of the 2005 Chippewa Falls High School band bus crash have filed civil suits.
The latest plaintiff got his case in just before yesterday’s deadline under the three-year statute of limitations.
The crash killed five people on Interstate-94 near Osseo in the overnight hours of Oct. 16 of 2005.
The band was heading home from a state competition in Whitewater when an oncoming trucker crashed his rig into the opposite lanes and the driver of the lead bus slammed into the wreckage in the darkness.
Twenty-nine people were injured.
The latest to file suit, Jessica Rozga, said she still gets physical therapy three times a week and she’s had numerous surgeries caused by the crash.
