(Pittsburgh) -- Two college lacrosse players who suffered concussions and other injuries when their team bus veered off the Turnpike and crashed in Cumberland  County, killing their pregnant coach, are suing the bus company.

Lawyers for Siiri Mason of Oxford, Michigan, and Abigail Shaughness of New Windsor, Maryland, have filed the lawsuits against Mlaker Transportation. 

Thirty-year-old Seton Hill coach Kristina Quigley, her unborn son and 61-year-old driver Anthony Guaetta were killed after the bus crashed into a tree near Carlisle.

The women's attorneys claim the March 16th crash was the kind of event that does not normally occur in the absence of negligence."

The bus company didn't immediately return a call from the Associated Press seeking comment Wednesday.

The suits seek unspecified damages.
