RED BLUFF, Calif. (AP) - Federal investigators are re-examining bus safety rules in the wake of the fiery crash that killed 10 in Orland.

National Transportation Safety Board member Mark Rosekind said Sunday that his agency is revisiting proposals to enhance fire and passenger safety in light of the tragedy.

A FedEx truck Thursday careened across an Interstate 5 median and slammed into a bus carrying high school students headed to a college tour. Dozens escaped before a massive explosion.

Investigators say evidence shows the truck driver didn't apply brakes and that the truck wasn't on fire before the crash as a witness claimed.
