ORLAND, Glenn County (CBS SF) — A young survivor of the I-5 bus crash that killed ten people is still recovering in the hospital, and telling his story of heartbreak and heroism during the moments after the crash.

Miles Hill was sitting near the front of the bus before the crash, and is being called a savior after knocking out a window that allowed dozens of people escape the flames after a FedEx truck collided head-on with the charter bus he was riding in to Humboldt State University.
