Feds Eye Possible Issues After Deadly Bus Crash

CALIFORNIA BUS CRASH

ORLAND, Calif. (AP) — Federal investigators say they will review whether a stretch of California freeway where a bus carrying students was struck by a big rig should have had a barrier down the median to prevent head-on collisions.

In addition, the National Transportation Safety Board said Friday it will determine if a fire suppression system recommended but not mandated for buses would have made a difference in the crash that left 10 people dead.

Mark Rosekind, an NTSB member, said his agency would be gathering information over the next two weeks but not immediately provide a preliminary cause of the fiery crash along Interstate 5.

The bus was carrying 44 teenagers from Southern California high schools to Humboldt State University to participate in a program that invites prospective low-income or first-generation college students to visit the campus.
