RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - A funeral has been held for an identical twin sister who was among the 10 people killed in an explosive freeway collision in Orland.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports Marisa Serrato was remembered Sunday as a devout and studious girl with big dreams.

Serrato was on a bus taking high school students to tour Humboldt State University when the bus was struck by a FedEx tractor-trailer on Interstate 5, north of Sacramento, on April 10.

Her twin Marisol was on a different bus that made it safely to the school.

Marisol told mourners gathered at a chapel west of Riverside that she and Marisa were inseparable for 17 years, but that it was time to let her sister go.

The cause of the crash remained under investigation.
