— A couple involved in the Northern California crash that killed 10 people say a tractor-trailer already was on fire as it came across a median.

Joe and Bonnie Duran were driving a sedan northbound on the 5 Freeway on Thursday when they said a FedEx truck heading south careened toward them, sideswiped their vehicle and crashed into the oncoming bus carrying high school students. The bus and truck quickly were engulfed in flames.

Bonnie Duran told KNBC-TV in Los Angeles that flames were coming from the lower rear of the truck.

KNBC reported the Durans will be interviewed Saturday by the California Highway Patrol before flying home to suburban Seattle.

Investigators have not mentioned the possibility the truck was on fire before the crash. Police also initially said the sedan and truck were traveling in the same direction.

Five students from the Los Angeles area, three chaperones and the truck and bus drivers died.
