(Libertyville, IL) The family of a Lake County man that died after falling out of a party bus several years ago, has reached a settlement with the bus company. James Larsen died in 2017, after falling out of the front door of the party bus near Deerfield, and being struck by an SUV on I-294. The bus company has reportedly admitted that the locking mechanism on the door was not properly aligned, causing it to open when Larsen fell…they also admitted the driver of the bus did not have the proper licensing. The financial details of the settlement have not been disclosed.
