Woman Suing Starline Tours for Leaving Her Permanently Cross-Eyed

Lauren Guerra, 36, of Los Angeles is suing the Starline Tours bus company after she was on the upper level of a double-decker bus and was hit in the head by a tree branch. It fractured the orbital bone around her eye. Guerra said that medical bills cost her $300,000.

In addition, Attorney Brian Kabateck said the death last year of 16-year-old Mason Zisette on a privately rented Starline bus motivated Guerra to take legal action.

Guerra was on a Halloween party tour two years ago when the accident happened. Kabateck said, “My client feels that after her incident, Starline should have done something to change what was happening on the bus. As a result of the fact that they made no changes and this poor young man died, she wanted to go public.”

Guerra says that she and other passengers received no safety warnings about going on the upper deck, and there wasn't any staff available to supervise the party.

Kabateck said, "Towards the end of the trip, people were ducking branches and trees, while the driver was going 45 miles per hour." Guerra sued Starline just days after Zisette died when his head was struck by an overpass as he stood on the upper deck of the bus as it rolled down the 405 freeway.

Kabateck went on to say “They have done nothing we’ve seen to mitigate these injuries. It’s almost like they don’t know the route.”
