NAMPA, Idaho (AP) — The family of a Nampa grade school student who was hit by a bus in March has filed a claim against the city and others.

The Idaho Press-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1NQXTpJ ) that the family of 7-year-old Connor Wright filed a tort claim Aug. 14 seeking more than $1,190,000 to cover medical bills and noneconomic damages. The city of Nampa, Brown Bus Company, the Nampa School District and the bus driver are named as defendants.

On March 17, Connor was hit by the bus as he and his 14-year-old brother were walking to school. He sustained injuries including a broken femur and humerus, skull fractures, a ruptured spleen, and traumatic brain injury.

Representatives for the Nampa, Nampa School District and Brown Bus Company were not immediately available for comment.
