HACIENDA HEIGHTS- California Highway Patrol investigators have determined that the driver of a FedEx tractor-trailer was responsible for a deadly bus crash in April 2014 killing ten.
In a CHP press conference Friday afternoon officials revealed the results of the lengthy investigation.
The agency found that the FedEx truck driver, Tim Evans, 32, did not make any evasive maneuvers before crashing into the bus. The agency said Evans could have fallen asleep or had an undiagnosed medical problem that lead to the vehicle drifting out of it's lane across the Interstate 5 median near Orland. However, the agency could not confirm either as the cause.
The resulting crash killed five Southern California students on a trip to visit HSU, three chaperones, Evans and the bus driver.
