The family of a woman who died following an accident involving a Regina Transit bus just over a year ago is now suing the city. On Feb. 15, 2013, Barbara Supynuk was waiting at a bus stop downtown when a bus lost control and hit a sign which struck her on the head. She died from her injuries on March 25. Supynuk's family is blaming the city of Regina for her death.
"They lost their mother, their daughter," Tim Stodalka, the family's lawyer, told CBC News. "This was a family that was very, very close and unfortunately, as a result of the actions of the city of Regina in failing to maintain its bus properly, resulted in her death."
