Crabtree's lawsuit says Nehru Shabazz Williams, the bus driver, rear-ended another vehicle and the resulting wreck injured Crabtree. Crabtree, who was 54 at the time of the wreck, says his injuries are "permanent, painful and progressive."

He is suing for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and impaired earning capacity due to his injuries. The school is named as Williams was serving as their employee driving a bus owned by TPS.
