Bus accident : 10 killed, including 5 students

Ten people died and dozens were injured in a fiery, head-on Glenn County crash Thursday between a FedEx delivery truck and a charter bus carrying high school students on a visit to a Northern California college, police said.

The bus was carrying prospective students to a spring preview day at Humboldt State University. The university released a statement about the accident, writing, “Our hearts go out to those who have been affected, and we are here to support them, and their families, in any way possible.”

Some of the students in the crash attend Los Angeles Unified School District, school officials said.

FedEx has pledged full cooperation with the investigation.

California Gov. Edmund Brown Jr. expressed sympathy in a statement.

“As we mourn the loss of those who died, we join all Californians in expressing our gratitude for the tireless work of the Red Cross and emergency personnel who responded bravely to this terrible tragedy,” Brown said.

The highway remains closed. National Transportation Safety Board investigators are expected to arrive at the scene Friday.
