HOUSTON (AP) - A lawsuit has been filed in state district court by a relative of three of the victims of the bus crash near Sherman -- seeking unspecified actual and punitive damages.

Lau Pham is suing the vehicle's manufacturer, owner and driver for negligence.

His wife was injured and his mother-in-law, Cham Nguyen, and sister-in-law, Catherine Tran, were among the 17 who died as a result of the accident early last Friday.

The Houston Chronicle reports Pham, who was not among the 55 passengers on the bus, filed the lawsuit yesterday in state district court naming Angel de la Torre and his bus firms.

He's also suing the bus driver, Barrett Wayne Broussard, and Motor Coach Industries Inc., the bus manufacturer.

Broussard is in Wilson N. Jones Hospital in Sherman in critical condition.

None of the parties named in the lawsuit could be reached for comment.
