New lawsuits from the 2016 fatal bus crash of a football team from Rock Hill filed by survivors of the crash and the widow of the bus driver allege tire failure through improper maintenance of the bus. One lawsuit was filed in November and amended in mid-January by Alisha Kirkpatrick, widow of bus driver Brian Kirkpatrick, who died in the crash along with three other people. A separate lawsuit by more than 30 survivors of the crash was filed last week. Both lawsuits claim that the bus had been worked on with a tire rotation and balancing just nine days before the crash near Rockingham, N.C. in September 2016.
