Orland bus crash victim's family files lawsuit
Updated On: Apr 22 2014 11:10:00 PM CDT
The mother of a teenager who was among 10 people killed in a fiery Northern California bus crash is suing the bus company and FedEx.
Attorney A. King Aminpour says the negligence suit filed Tuesday in Los Angeles seeks $100 million.
Seventeen-year-old Jennifer Bonilla, of Los Angeles, was on a bus taking students to tour a university April 10 when it was struck by a FedEx truck on a freeway in Orland.
Five teens and five adults died, including both drivers.
Some witnesses say the FedEx truck was on fire before the crash. The lawsuit alleges FedEx trucks have a history of catching fire.
Memphis, Tenn.-based FedEx Corp. declined to discuss the litigation but says it's cooperating with investigators.
A call seeking comment from the bus owner, Silverado Stages, wasn't immediately returned.
