Teen Who Survived Deadly Orland Bus Crash Files Lawsuit

A teenager who survived a deadly tour bus crash that killed 10 people in Northern California last month announced a lawsuit against FedEx and the tour bus company on Wednesday.

High school student Miles Hill, 18, says he was sitting right behind the bus driver when a FedEx truck crossed the median and slammed into the bus carrying Los Angeles-area students to a weekend event for prospective freshmen at Humbolt State University on April 10.

“The last conscious memory I have was seeing the truck coming at me, and I figured all was lost and I was done, ” Hill said.

Hill, who played the violin with his school company, said doctors have told him that some of the injuries he sustained in the crash may be permanent and could prevent him from ever playing the violin again.

Attorneys for FedEx and the tour bus company, Silverado Stages, had yet to comment on the lawsuit.
