9 Killed in US Bus Crash

Officials in northern California on the U.S. west coast say a bus carrying high school students collided Thursday with a FedEx truck, killing nine people and injuring at least 35 others.

The tour bus burst into flames after colliding with the large truck near Orland, about 250 kilometers north of San Francisco.

The students were headed to Humboldt State University in northern California.

A statement on the university's website says the "charter bus was filled with prospective students" scheduled to visit the campus for an April 11 event.

The cause of the collision was not immediately clear.
