The negligence suit was filed Tuesday in Los Angeles on behalf of Miles Hill.

The 18-year-old Los Angeles teen was at a news conference announcing the suit Wednesday. Hill said he kicked out a window to escape. He suffered a broken collarbone and burns.

Los Angeles-area high schoolers were heading to Humboldt State University for a visit on April 10 when their bus was struck head-on by a FedEx truck on Interstate 5, north of Sacramento.

Hill's suit names FedEx and Silverado Stages. The companies also were sued last month over the death of 17-year-old Jennifer Bonilla.
