    Authorities Seek Cause of Student Bus Crash That Killed 10 - New York Times

    FedEx Driver Crossed California Interstate Median

    The authorities on Friday were investigating what caused the driver of a FedEx tractor-trailer to cross a grassy center divide and slam into a chartered bus carrying high school students on a trip to a Northern California university.

    The accident, which killed 10 people and left dozens injured, occurred Thursday evening on Interstate 5 in Orland, a town about 100 miles north of Sacramento. Both the FedEx truck and bus burst into flames, shutting down traffic on both sides of the highway.

    The California Highway Patrol said the drivers of the bus and the truck and several students were among the dead.
