A driver who suffered spinal injuries that kept him from ever returning to work when his NJ Transit bus was struck from behind by a school bus in Ridgefield Park received a $2.25 million settlement, a published report says.

Miguel Alvarez had stopped to collect passengers on eastbound Route 46 when his bus was struck from behind on June 22, 2017, aggravating a previous injury, attorney Edward Capozzi, told New Jersey Law Journal .

Capozzi filed a personal injury suit on Alvarez’s behalf against Felix Rodriguez-Esprit, the driver of the Morgan Educational Services bus, in Superior Court in Hackensack.

The case was settled at mediation, NJ Law Journal reported .
