PITTSBURGH - Two college lacrosse players who suffered concussions and other injuries when their team's bus veered off the Pennsylvania Turnpike and crashed, killing their pregnant coach, are suing the bus company.
Lawyers for Siiri Mason, of Oxford, Mich. And Abigail Shaughness, of New Windsor, Md. Filed the lawsuits Tuesday against Mlaker (muh-LAH'-ker) Transportation Inc. of Davidsville. Company officials did not immediately return a call seeking comment Wednesday.
Thirty-year-old Seton Hill University coach Kristina Quigley, her unborn son and 61-year-old driver Anthony Guaetta were killed.
Although the lawsuits don't specify how, the women's attorneys claim the March 16 crash was the kind of event "that does not normally occur in the absence of negligence."
The bus crashed into a tree after veering off the eastbound lanes near Carlisle about 9 a.m.
The suits seek unspecified damages.
