San Francisco crash: 10 killed as bus carrying students collides with truck


Ten people were killed and 34 injured when a truck veered across a highway to slam head-on into a bus packed with more than 40 high school students near Orland, 150 miles north of San Francisco.

The vehicles burst into flames after the collision and students fought their way through a window to escape the wreckage. However, five students, the two drivers and three other adults died.

An investigation has been launched to determine the cause.
