Mother sues over Mass. crash that injured son

Posted: February 15, 2013

A lawyer filed a lawsuit Thursday on behalf of the mother of a Neshaminy High School student critically injured Feb. 2 when a bus he was riding struck the bottom of a Boston overpass.

Matthew R. Cruz, 16, of Langhorne, was one of 42 Bucks County residents on a visit to Harvard University with a local nonprofit, the Destined for a Dream Foundation. On the return trip, their bus crashed into an overpass on a road along the Charles River. The road had a height limit of 10 feet, which the bus exceeded.

Megan Cruz is suing the Philadelphia bus company, Calvary Coach, and its owner, Raymond Talmadge, as well as the bus driver, Samuel J. Jackson of Philadelphia. The suit was filed in Common Pleas Court in Philadelphia. - Robert Moran
