The bus accident that occurred in Carrollton, Kentucky, in 1988 lives on in infamy as the second deadliest bus crash in our country’s history. This was the terrible tragedy that claimed the lives of 27 and injured 34 more after a drunk driver in a pickup truck collided head-on with a gasoline-powered bus, creating a deadly blaze.
T.J. Smith was the law clerk who worked on this case more than 20 years ago. Today, he still fights vigorously on behalf of adults and children injured by the negligence of others. He is currently representing the victims of another school bus accident that occurred in Carrollton, working with the same accident reconstruction expert who handled the first Carrollton tragedy.
