A pair of Japanese tourists who were celebrating their first wedding anniversary with a road trip through the American Southwest have filed a lawsuit pertaining to the August 2009 crash that killed three and wounded several more of the 14 passengers. Mai and Kei Maeda suffered a number of serious injuries as a result of the crash, including a punctured lung and a broken neck, respectively. The suit filed in the case alleges that the driver of the bus had smoked marijuana the evening before the accident and was operating the bus on very little sleep. It is further alleged that the driver was actually seen to be falling asleep when the crash occurred.
