Family of girl killed in Iowa school bus fire files lawsuit against district

The family of an Iowa teen killed in a fiery bus crash in western Iowa has filed a lawsuit against the Riverside Community School District.

Court documents show the family of 16-year-old Megan Klindt allege the district knew there was a problem with the bus driver but did not adequately address it.

The documents claim Klindt had complained to her school principal that she felt unsafe with Donald Hendricks, 74, driving the bus.

Klindt and the 74-year-old driver both died when the bus caught fire in Oakland, Iowa, in December.
