Seton Hill Women's Lacrosse Coach Kristina Quigley

(Pittsburgh) -- A college lacrosse player who was injured when her team's bus veered off the Pennsylvania Turnpike and crashed in Cumberland County is suing the bus company.

Seton Hill University freshman Amanda Michalski has filed the lawsuit against Mlaker Transportation.

30-year-old coach Kristina Quigley, her unborn son and 61-year-old bus driver Anthony Guaetta were killed.

The lawsuit in Allegheny County Court seeks unspecified damages and says the driver "failed to keep the bus under proper control" and "was otherwise negligent and reckless" when the bus crashed Saturday in Cumberland County.

The bus company's not commenting. Michalski remains at Penn State Hershey Medical Center, where she's listed in good condition.

Meanwhile, the school's planning a tonight vigil at its Greensburg campus for Quigley, her unborn son and Guaetta.
