The Chicago Sun-Times reports (https://bit.ly/1FF8EWV ) the daughter and son of 51-year-old Aimee Coath of Flossmoor filed the lawsuit Monday against the CTA and the 48-year-old driver of the bus. Coath died after being struck by a bus that initially stopped at the red light on Michigan Avenue but then went through it, hitting several vehicles and another pedestrian June 2.

The CTA issued a statement saying it doesn’t comment on pending litigation.
