Results due for investigation of deadly Orland bus crash

More than a year after a fiery wreck between a FedEx semi-truck and a charter bus killed 10, including five high school students, authorities are expected to address the biggest remaining question: What caused the crash?

On Friday, the California Highway Patrol is set to release the results of its 13-month investigation into the April 2014 head-on collision in Orland.

The results will be released at an afternoon news conference after the agency meets with family members of those killed in the crash. The dead were five high school students from the Los Angeles area, three chaperones, and the drivers of the FedEx tractor-trailer and the bus.

What remains unknown is why the tractor-trailer gradually veered across the interstate median and into oncoming traffic.
