An intoxicated man was struck by a CTA bus after the driver kicked him off, according to a lawsuit filed Thursday in Cook County Circuit Court.
In May, Travis Crawford was riding a westbound CTA bus on West Chicago Avenue in the West Side Austin neighborhood, the suit said. When the bus reached North Laramie Avenue, the driver asked Crawford to get off the bus because he was too intoxicated. After he walked off, the bus hit and then ran over him.
As a result of the incident, Crawford suffered “severe” personal injuries, the suit stated.
The three-count suit seeks more than $50,000 in damages.
A CTA spokesman said Thursday night that they do not comment on pending litigation.
