Los Paisanos Charter Bus Accident Near Walsenburg Injures Multiple Passengers

Published: December 3, 2019 0012 10:00 am


bus flipped over in the highway | Los Paisanos Charter Bus AccidentA charter bus operated by a Texas company named Los Paisanos, rolled over early on Thanksgiving day near Walsenburg, about 90 miles south of Colorado Springs.

There were almost 50 passengers on the bus at the time, and while it is unclear how many were injured in the Los Paisanos charter bus accident, thankfully, there were no fatalities. Multiple people were taken to local hospitals for treatment. 

Passengers on the bus at the time describe the horrifying scene they experienced while trying to find injured loved ones in the wreckage, surrounded by other passengers “screaming and yelling” for help.

Maria Rodriguez, a Denver resident whose parents were on the bus at the time of the rollover, reports that both of her parents are injured and are in pain, with her mother having “4 or 5 ribs broken”. At the time of this writing, Rodriguez has also said that she has been unable to get a representative from the bus company on the phone, in order to get answers. 

The investigation is ongoing, but FOX31 reports that the Texas company, while receiving an overall “satisfactory” rating, has still received multiple citations for unsafe driving, including multiple speeding violations, and citations for drivers who have spent too much time behind the wheel at one time. 

Also, in 2005, Los Paisanos was involved in a van accident that resulted in the death of two people and the injury of several more. 

The Colorado State Patrol reports that they believe a high rate of speed to be a possible factor in this accident, and the 53-year-old driver at the wheel at the time of the accident, Alberto Torres, has since been charged by police for careless driving resulting in bodily injury.

I have worked with Greg Gold and his attorneys on a number of personal injury cases for our clients. His law firm is very creative and extremely talented. I would recommend him to anyone dealing with a car accident, insurance dispute, or catastrophic injury claim.

Jessica Yates -


The Gold Law Firm and Greg took on my unique case when no one else would. They were amazing through the whole process. Making sure we clearly understood everything. Always taking extra time to answer all our questions. In the end we got justice! I just learned that now they have a special victims unit, and it warms my heart to know that someone is there for those unique victims.

Janet Christensen -


This is a top-notch law firm who puts their client first. Colleen Parsley walked me through all the steps of my lawsuit. She is the best lawyer you can partner with. Mike Rosenberg was the insurance specialist and has outstanding expertise. Between the two of them we were able to settle my claim with two different insurance companies who had no intention of settling with me directly. I received a recommendation to contact the Gold Law Firm after a year of providing evidence and expecting coverage of my home damage after a water heater failure. I finally realized my only option was to hire a lawyer. I am very grateful that I found the best!

Cannot speak highly enough about the Gold Law Firm. My case was turned over to them when the original firm and the insurance firm reached an impasse. Michael took on the case and stuck with it until an additional settlement was reached. My children have a stress free start in life thanks to the efforts of the Gold Law Firm.
