PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) – A college lacrosse player who was injured when her team’s bus veered off the Pennsylvania Turnpike and crashed is suing the bus company.
According to a press release, Seton Hill University freshman Amanda Michalski filed the lawsuit against Mlaker Transportation.
Thirty-year-old coach Kristina Quigley, her unborn son and 61-year-old bus driver Anthony Guaetta were killed.
The lawsuit in Allegheny County Court seeks unspecified damages and says the driver “failed to keep the bus under proper control” and “was otherwise negligent and reckless” when the bus crashed Saturday in Cumberland County.
The bus company isn’t commenting. Michalski remains at Penn State Hershey Medical Center, where she’s listed in good condition.
Meanwhile, there’s a Thursday night vigil planned at the school’s Greensburg campus for Quigley, her unborn son and Guaetta.
Sunday night, about 600 students packed St. Joseph’s Chapel for a memorial service – so many that there was standing room only.
Five of the lacrosse members were also hurt in the crash.
Quigley left behind a husband and son.
