A Texas teen killed in a school bus crash constantly complained about how her driver “couldn’t drive,” her heartbroken family said Tuesday as they announced plans to sue the school district.

New York Daily reports: 

Mariya Johnson was one of two students who died Tuesday when their Houston Independent School District bus was hit by another car and fell off a freeway overpass. Two other students and bus driver Louisa Pacheco were injured.

The 17-year-old, a senior at REACH Charter High School on the Furr High School campus, didn’t trust Pacheco’s skills on the road, her family said at a Tuesday night press conference.
