A survivor of the fiery school bus crash that killed 10 people on Interstate 5 near Orland is suing FedEx and the owner of the charter bus.
The negligence suit was filed this week in Los Angeles, on behalf of Miles Hill.
The 18-year-old high school senior suffered a broken collarbone and burns in the April 10th crash.
Five students and 5 adults on their way to Humboldt University were killed, when a FedEx truck crossed the center divide and slammed into their bus.
At a news conference with his family in L.A. today, Hill said he had to kick-out a window to escape the flames. "I'm in a field across from the bus, the bus was on fire, my head was burning, and I was in massive amounts of pain. But I didn't focus on that, I was trying to focus on I'm going to make it out of this, I'm going to be okay."
Hill is a violinist and says he might never be able to play again.
In all, five lawsuits have now been filed on behalf of bus crash victims.
