The families of students that were injured when a Mustang crashed into an Albuquerque Public Schools bus are filing a civil lawsuit.
The parents have filed a suit against Mario Perez, who police said was driving recklessly when he slammed into the bus filled with George Sanchez Middle School students in February.
The lawsuit also targets Perez’s auto insurance and Albuquerque Public Schools.
The lawsuit alleges Perez was “traveling above the posted speed limit,” which is what witnesses told investigators at the scene.
The bus driver told Albuquerque police the white Mustang Perez was driving came out of nowhere when the bus crossed the intersection at Gibson and Messina.
“And I proceeded to clear it and by the time I had pretty much cleared it, the guy came and hit the back end of the tires. I was almost across already,” said Jaime Rios, APS bus driver.
