10 people killed in California crash between bus and FedEx truck


ORLAND, Calif. (AP) - Five high school students and three adult chaperones are among the ten people dead after yesterday's fiery crash involving a FedEx tractor-trailer and a bus carrying more than 40 students on a college visit.

The drivers of the bus and the truck also died.

A spokesman for the National Transportation Safety Board says a team of highway crash experts left on a flight this morning, headed to the crash scene.

The bus had been chartered by Humboldt State University to bring prospective students for a tour of the campus.
