LOS ANGELES (AP) – The family of a Los Angeles student who was among 10 people killed when a FedEx truck collided with a charter bus in Northern California is suing the shipping company.

The Los Angeles Times reports a wrongful death lawsuit to be filed Tuesday lays blame for the April 10 crash on the FedEx truck, its manufacturer, Volvo, and its driver, who was among those killed. The charter bus company, Silverado Stages, is also named in the suit.

The suit is on behalf of 18-year-old Ismael Jimenez, who was part of a group heading north for a free tour of Humboldt State University.

A student injured in the crash filed suit earlier this month, and in April the mother of a student who died filed a lawsuit seeking $100 million.
