 NTSB Opens Docket on Truck and Motorcoach Collision in California

As part of its continuing investigation into the collision of a truck and a motorcoach that occurred in Orland, CA, the National Transportation Safety Board has opened the accident docket, releasing about 2,150 pages of documents.

On April 10, 2014, a Volvo truck-tractor in combination with two trailers operated by FedEx Freight, Inc., crossed the center median of Interstate 5, collided with a Nissan Altima and then collided head-on with a Setra motorcoach on the northbound side of the highway. Both the truck and motorcoach drivers and eight motorcoach passengers were fatally injured. The two occupants of the passenger vehicle and the 37 motorcoach passengers received non-fatal injuries.

The information released is factual in nature and does not provide any analysis. Included in the docket are witness and passenger interviews, reports on various issue areas, and photographs.

The docket material is available at:

Additional material may be added to the docket as it becomes available. Analysis of the accident, along with a determination of probable cause, will come later when the final report on the investigation is completed.


This is a document release only. No interviews are being conducted.
