The Los Angeles Times reports:

The California Highway Patrol said the accident occurred on the northbound 5 near Orland in Glenn County.

A CHP dispatcher told The Times “there were explosions” and that the FedEx truck was engulfed in flames. Photos show both the truck and the bus badly burned.

She said there were 46 people on the bus. It was not clear if the driver of the FedEx truck was injured. A third vehicle involved in the crash, a Nissan Altima, was carrying two people, but neither were injured, she said.

[Update]

Officials now say 10 people were killed and 34 were injured.
