A FedEx truck crossed over the highway median and slammed into a charter bus carrying high school students on Interstate 5 near Orland, a small city north of Sacramento.
The highway was turned into an inferno, and according to the California Highway Patrol at least 10 people, including both drivers, five of the students, and three adult chaperones were killed.
Many more were injured, and are reported to have escaped through smashed windows.
The collision occurred around 5:30 p.m. on April 10, 2014. The students on the bus were headed to Humboldt State University for their Preview Plus program and many were from the Los Angeles and Southern California area.
