CA Crash Probe Includes Limiting Bus Fires

Posted: Updated:

ORLAND, Calif. (AP) - A couple in California says that a FedEx tractor-trailer was already on fire when it careened across a median, sideswiped their car and slammed into a bus carrying high school students. This revelation Saturday adds a new twist to the investigation of a crash that killed 10 people.
    
Initial reports by police indicated the truck swerved to avoid a sedan that was traveling in the same direction about 100 miles north of Sacramento, then went across the median. There was no mention of the truck being on fire.
    
But Joe and Bonnie Duran, the Seattle-area couple who were in the car, said, like the bus, they were northbound on Interstate 5 on Thursday afternoon. Bonnie Duran, who was driving, tells KNBC-TV in Los Angeles that flames were coming from the lower rear of the truck cab.
    
She says, in her words, "I just looked to the left, and there it was coming through right at me at an angle."
