David Horn: let down by the US authorities

On July 10, 2009, local resident and business owner David Horn was involved in a five-car collision, caused by a T-Bus in Fort Worth.

The bus hit a car from the rear, killing that individual, and that car then crashed into Mr. Horn’s car, changing his life forever physically and professionally.

While other claims have been settled, due to the fact that the bus driver was found to be at fault for not controlling his speed properly, Mr. Horn’s claims continue to be denied with no plausible explanation.

He has lost his business, is working in South Padre, 600 miles from his wife to make ends meet and should he slip or fall, could become a quadriplegic or paralyze his diaphragm, requiring him to breathe with the aid of a machine for the rest of his life.

David is an avid sportsman who opened the first kiteboarding shop in the Dallas area, one of the fastest growing watersports in the world. A march on City Hall from your local kitesurfing constituents totaling 221 members and growing, is planned to protest this grave injustice.

In reviewing the facts of this incident, there is no doubt that the T-Bus was 100 percent at fault for Mr. Horn’s accident and how government authorities can deny any responsibility for his claim is simply outrageous and wrong. He should be fully compensated to the full extent for the damages the city’s transit bus caused to his property and way of life.
