LOS ANGELES (KTLA)-
The mother of a Los Angeles-area student killed when a charter bus and a FedEx truck crashed in Orland has filed a lawsuit.
The suit, which was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Tuesday by the mother of Dorsey High School senior Jennifer Bonilla, claims FedEx trucks have a history of catching fire.
It names FedEx Corporation, FedEx Freight, Inc., Silverado Stages, Inc. and the Estate of Timothy P. Evans as the defendants, according to court documents.
FedEx declined to comment on the impending litigation, saying in a statement, “We remain focused on providing support to those affected and cooperating with the authorities as they conduct their investigation.”
Ten people were killed and dozens of others were hospitalized when a FedEx truck driven by Evans collided with a charter bus carrying high school students who were on their way to visit Humboldt State University nearly two weeks ago.
