According to reports, the accident happened just less than 100 miles North of Sacramento, CA.  The fatalities, as confirmed by a CHP spokeswoman, were 5 students 4 chaperones, the tour bus driver and the driver of the Fedex truck. In addition to these tragic fatalities, more than 30 people were injured as a result of the crash, air and land ambulances were used to transport the injured to hospitals in the area, with a variety of injuries.

According to the CHP spokeswoman, Tracy Hoover, the Fedex driver lost control of the truck, jumped the divider on the I-5, side-swiped a car and crashed head on into the bus.

The tour bus was en route to Humboldt State University, bringing prospective college students to visit the campus as part of a program that encourages students that are first generation and low income to seek higher education.
