The horrific bus accident that killed 10 people remains under investigation, and sources indicate that such investigation may take several months to complete. The accident occurred when a Fed Ex tractor-trailer collided with a tour bus carrying high school students on Interstate 5 north of Highway 32 en route to Humboldt State University. The drivers of both vehicles died, as well as 5 students and three adult chaperones.
The collision caused both the truck and bus to catch on fire. According to reports, the FedEx truck crossed the center median, hitting a Nissan, then ramming into the bus. One of the students on the bus described a frightening scene – stating that he was trying to nap when he felt the bus shake from left to right and he heard a loud "boom".
