Parents of a 13-year-old girl are suing the Iowa City school district over injuries their daughter received, alleging her wheelchair wasn't properly secured on a bus.

Bradley Kaldahl and Soon Ryang filed the suit against the district and bus company, Durham School Services, over the May 2012 accident.

The lawsuit says Samantha Kaldahl sustained head injuries and a broken tooth when she fell out of her wheelchair after the bus hit a bump and then the 90-pound wheelchair fell on her.

The $15,000 wheelchair was also damaged.
