An 18-wheeler slams into a bus filled with high school students on their way to a college tour. Chris Clackum reports.

At least ten people are now dead following a fiery bus crash on California's Interstate 5 near Orland.

Witnesses say a FedEx delivery truck crossed the median, slamming into a charter bus carrying prospective college students to a tour at Humboldt State University.

Both vehicle immediately erupted in flames.

"There was an emergency exit, but there were too many students in the bus that were trying to get out, so students that were there broke the windows, and that helped a lot of us get out safely," said crash survivor Jonathan Gutierrez.
