ORLAND, Glenn County (CBS / AP) — Both drivers in the fiery Northern California crash involving a FedEx truck and bus full of students had clean driving records.
According to The Sacramento Bee, California’s Department of Motor Vehicles says neither driver had a moving violation, though the bus driver’s license was briefly suspended a decade ago.

FedEx driver Tim Evans and the driver of the chartered bus, Talalelei Lealao-Taiao, were killed along with eight passengers Thursday when the truck veered across the median of Interstate 5 and smashed into the bus.
The Glenn County coroner has not released official identifications, but Lealao-Taiao’s employer confirmed her name, and the Bee spoke with a member of Evans’ extended family.
Federal and state investigators expect to take months to determine what caused the accident.
