Court documents show that the owner of a charter bus, which crashed in Louisville and injured 23 students and adults, says he was unaware the vehicle had 11-year-old tires that came from a scrap bin.
Four lawsuits were filed against Commonwealth Bus Service & Transportation Inc. after the bus loaded with high school students blew a tire on June 11 on Interstate 64 and hit a concrete median. The group was returning from a college campus visit.
The company was cited by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration in July for violations related to inspections and maintenance. It closed in November.
