A Chicago woman said she was dragged down a city block by a CTA bus.Lawyers for 28-year-old Yvonne Bernier have filed a motion to preserve the bus as evidence.

They want know if there was an equipment defect and look at surveillance video from Thursday's incident.

The lawyers say Bernier was boarding a bus on the 1100-block of South Michigan when the doors closed on her. Her attorneys say she was trapped and dragged for a block before the driver finally stopped. She's hospitalized for treatment for her injuries.

The CTA says the incident is being investigated, but can not confirm that Bernier was dragged.
