UI student hit by campus bus files lawsuit

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — A University of Iowa nursing student hit by a campus bus in 2011 has filed a lawsuit against the bus driver, the school and the state.

Cedar Rapids station KCRG (http://bit.ly/10jfajf ) reports Rebecca Segriff is seeking compensation for physical, emotional and mental pain caused by the accident involving a Cambus. Court documents filed in Johnson County do not specify how much compensation she is seeking.

Police say Segriff was hit by the bus as she walked near a campus intersection. She cracked the bus windshield and ended up underneath the bus with serious injuries.

The lawsuit claims the bus driver failed to keep proper control of the vehicle and failed to warn Segriff he was approaching.

A message left Monday night for a university spokesman was not immediately returned.
