(SEYMOUR) - Another lawsuit has been filed by a passenger claiming she was injured in a Megabus rollover crash in Jackson County last December that left about two dozen people hurt.

The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that Celina McManus was on the bus traveling from Chicago to Atlanta when it crashed December 20 near Seymour.

Four other passengers have already filed lawsuits.

The bus, carrying 70 passengers, was southbound on I-65 about 5:30 a.m. when authorities say it struck a median and rolled onto its side. Reports on that day says that it was snowing and roadway conditions were quickly deteriorating. The lawsuit alleges that the driver lost control of the bus while changing lanes on a railroad overpass. At least 24 passengers were reportedly injured.

The report says that all five suits were filed in Cook County Circuit Court in Illinois. They claim negligence against the driver, as well as Coach USA, Inc. and its subsidiaries.
