CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — A passenger on the school bus that crashed in Chattanooga and his mother have filed a lawsuit against the bus driver and the company that provides busing for the Hamilton County schools.

Media outlets report attorney Herbert Thornbury represents Kimberly Boling and the 8-year-old boy. The lawsuit claims 24-year-old Johnthony Walker was driving negligently and carelessly and caused the collision, which resulted in the deaths of five children.

Walker is charged with five counts of vehicular homicide.

The bus was carrying students from an elementary school when it turned over and hit a tree Monday afternoon.

The lawsuit against Walker and Durham School Services contends the boy may be permanently injured, sustained pain and suffering and will incur medical and other expenses as a result of the wreck.
