ST. LOUIS – A lawsuit was filed Thursday against Eminem, his bus
driver and tour bus company seeking unspecified damages for a July
accident involving seven vehicles in western Missouri.

The lawsuit was filed in St. Louis by Michigan truck driver Breck
Wyngarden and his wife, Ascension “Tina” Wyngarden. Along with Eminem,
whose real name is Marshall Mathers III, the suit names bus driver
Charlie Dilligard and the tour bus company, Entertainment Coaches of
America.

The accident happened July 13 about 25 miles east of Kansas City.
Eminem was not on the bus, but seven people on the Anger Management
Tour were among 11 sent to the hospital. Also hospitalized were Tina
Wyngarden, two motorcycle drivers and a motorcycle passenger.

Among those injured from the tour bus were the driver; Eminem’s DJ
Alan Maman, also known as Alchemist; and Stanley Benton, 26, a rapper
who goes by the name Stat Quo and is considered one of Eminem’s
proteges.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said the bus was westbound about 6
p.m., on its way to a tour stop in Denver after a stop in Chicago.

Attorney Jeff Lowe, who is representing the Wyngardens, claimed the
tour bus swerved to avoid a collision, but struck the side of the
tractor-trailer. The lawsuit said Breck Wyngarden suffered rib
injuries, while his wife injured her head, neck and back.

Spokesmen for Eminem and Entertainment Coaches of America did not
return phone messages Friday. There was no phone listing for
Dilligard, of Suitland, Md.

Just last week, two of Eminem’s relatives filed a lawsuit against him
claiming he’s trying to evict them from the home he had built for
them. Jack and Betty Schmitt, his uncle and aunt, are seeking more
than $350,000 and possession of the home.

The 32-year-old rap star recently canceled his European tour, citing
exhaustion. His publicist has said he is undergoing treatment for
dependency to sleep medication.
