Keith Nystrom was weaving through traffic in the tunnel’s center tube and cut off an NJ Transit bus around 7:30 p.m., which was rear-ended by another bus. Nystrom was pulled underneath the front of the bus and pinned against the road. Nystrom reportedly broke both legs and an arm. The accident backed up traffic for hours.
Nystrom reportedly underwent four surgeries, can’t use his left hand, and has limited use of his left arm due to nerve damage, the website reported.
NJ Transit’s board of directors must approve the settlement, NorthJersey.com reported. That is expected to happen within 45 days, Nystrom’s lawyer, Daniel Hurley said.
