Fatal California collision kills 10 people
On Thursday, April 10 ten people were killed in an explosive freeway collision involving a FedEx truck, an automobile, and a tour bus.
According to police investigators, a southbound FedEx truck crossed over a patch of grass on the interstate and then immediately hit the side of a car before crashing into the tour bus, which erupted into flames.
The bus that exploded during the crash had been one of three buses commissioned by Humboldt State University to give a tour to students of the Arcata campus as part of the university’s two-day Preview Plus program.
Included among the list of fatalities are Humboldt alumni and chaperones Michael Myvett, 29, and his fiancée, Mattison Haywood, 27, Humboldt admissions counselor Arthur Arzola, 26 and both drivers on the bus.
