ORLAND, Calif. - During a live press conference held at 6:30 a.m. Friday morning, Los Angeles Unified School District officials released the names of the schools where the students involved in a deadly bus crash are from.
The identities of the dead have not been released, but 19 of the students on the trip were enrolled at the following LAUSD high schools: Robert F. Kennedy, Manuel Arts, Banning San Fernando, Dorsey, Freemont, City of Angeles, Carson, Chavez, Diego Rivera, Wilson, Chatsworth, Belmont, Middle College and Jefferson, officials said.
Students from other Southland school districts were also on board the buses.
The trip was geared toward disadvantaged teens who would be the first in their family to attend college.
Investigators said Friday that five students, three chaperones and two drivers were among those killed in the fiery crash between a FedEx delivery truck and a charter bus in Northern California.
The crash happened a little after 5:30 p.m. Thursday on Interstate 5 near Orland, a small city about an hour-and-a-half north of Sacramento.
Officials say the FedEx truck hit a car and collided head-on with one of three charter buses that were headed to Humboldt State University to tour the campus. Both vehicles burst into flames as students kicked open windows to escape the fire.
Humboldt State University police have set up an information line for parents and family at (707) 826-6327.
