Houston, Texas (September 13, 2022) — Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner partner, Mo Aziz, and attorneys, Karl Long and Morgan Mills, together with Nicholas A. Rodriguez and Kevin A. Koudelka, of Richardson Koudelka, LLP, filed a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of Sean and Tori Sayre, Individually and as Representatives of the Estate of Emory Sayre, Deceased.

Emory Sayre, a child killed by a school bus.

On April 25, 2022, six-year-old Emory Sayre was tragically killed after being run over by a Brock ISD school bus. While unloading at the stop across from her house, Emory was the last of three students to walk in front of the bus before crossing the street. As Emory began walking in front of the bus, the bus driver started driving away unaware that a child was present. Emory was hit and fell under the front right of the bus, sustaining fatal injuries.
The lawsuit alleges design defects against the manufacturer of the bus for not installing student detection systems and school bus motion sensor technology. Life-saving technologies designed to prevent tragedies such as this have been available for years and should be required given the gravity of the dangers involved.
