ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - Passengers who were injured in a 2013 Colorado bus crash are finally getting their day in court.

The Aspen Times reports (https://bit.ly/1OdHvOu ) that a Roaring Fork Transportation Authority bus flipped on its side in October 2013 after swerving to avoid a slow-moving tractor. The bus was on its way from Aspen to Glenwood Springs.

Monday marks the start of a two-week trial to determine who is responsible for the crash, which ejected several passengers and left three people with incapacitating injuries.

A jury will have how much blame lies with the bus driver and what percentage of the responsibility belongs to the tractor’s driver and the tractor’s owner.

Nine of the plaintiffs were on the bus and another is the husband of a passenger.

Individual damages will be assessed in a second trial.
