The family is suing Hacienda La Puente Unified School District and the bus driver for wrongful death stemming from the driver’s negligence. The suit was filed at Los Angeles County Superior Court on July 25.

Several witnesses were on hand to see the accident. This includes firefighters who just moments earlier had seen Guerrero walking while stopped at a red light.

Moments later they heard the loud impact and by the time they got to the road, Guerrero had perished. It is just another incident at a crosswalk, the intersection of Unruh and Fairgrove avenues, that has received criticism already for being dangerous and causing previous accidents. Additionally, The five-point intersection is well known to have constant, heavy, and sometimes threatening traffic.

Several other witnesses were also on hand to see the unfortunate incident.

The 76-year-old’s family is now calling for “some sort of accountability or some sort of implementation of safer rules.”

Adamson Ahdoot attorneys have said that “‘negligence’ is the core of the lawsuit, and that while they are seeking an undisclosed amount of money, ‘justice’ is their main agenda.”
