A pregnant Houston woman killed in a bus accident last week was buried Tuesday, the same day her family filed a lawsuit against the bus company.
Family members of Yani Mendoza, 19, filed a lawsuit against Lucino Bus Lines Tuesday. Attorneys representing the family say the driver of the bus fell asleep at the wheel en route from Mexico to Houston Thursday.
Passengers on the bus report seeing the driver downing energy drinks like Red Bull.
Mendoza and her mother, Irma Patricio, who was also on the bus, were in Mexico for a relative’s birthday. Patricio suffered injuries in the accident.
Meanwhile, attorney Benny Agosto tells FOX 26 the driver of the busy can’t be located. He was questioned but reported disappeared sometime after.
Mendoza was buried in southeast Houston.
