Investigators Continue Orland Bus Accident Investigation in L.A.


The investigation into a Northern California bus accident has shifted to the L.A. area. The Los Angeles Times reports that investigators are still looking into what caused a deadly crash between a FedEx freight truck and a Silverado Stages charter bus.

Students from the Los Angeles area made up the bulk of the 48 bus passengers. The L.A. Times reports that 44 of the passengers were Southern California high school students. Among the dead are five students, three chaperones, and the drivers of the two vehicles.

Investigators are examining the scene of the accident, which is on Interstate 5 in Orland. They are also interviewing surviving students, mainly in Southern California. The students were going to Humboldt State University for orientation programming when their bus was hit by a FedEx truck that veered into its path.

Authorities say that it is still too early to determine what caused the driver to rear off of the road.
