FedEx Sued Over Deadly Bus Crash

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The mother of a teenager who was among 10 people killed in the fiery bus crash in Orland 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 Humboldt State University April 10 when it was struck by a FedEx truck on Interstate 5. Five teens and five adults died, including both drivers. Some witnesses say the FedEx truck was on fire before the crash, though the N-T-S-B says there's no evidence of that. The lawsuit alleges FedEx trucks have a history of catching fire. 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 returned.
