- An $88 million settlement related to a bus fired that claimed the lives of 23 people during a Hurricane Rita evacuation. Forty-four nursing home residents and nursing staff from Bellaire, Texas had been traveling by motorcoach for 15 hours when a passing motorist alerted the driver to the appearance of a fire in the wheel well. Heat generated in the right rear tag axle caused the tire to catch on fire, filling the cabin of the bus with smoke and hindering rescue efforts.
- A $10.8 million settlement related to a bus crash in Victoria, Texas. The driver of the tour bus lost control, sending the bus into a skid across the roadway. Several of the 46 passengers, who were returning to Houston from Monterrey, Mexico, were seriously injured in the wreck.
