Drivers in wreck: No violations

Both the FedEx tractor-trailer driver and the bus driver in Thursday's fatal collision on Interstate 5 near Orland, Calif., had clean driving records with no history of violations, although the bus driver had a suspended license a decade ago for a brief time, the California Department of Motor Vehicles said Monday.

Timothy Paul Evans, 32, of Elk Grove, Calif., was driving the FedEx tractor- trailer southbound on I-5 when it suddenly veered across the median, clipped a northbound Nissan Altima, then smashed into a northbound bus packed with students. Evans, five students, three chaperones, and the bus driver, Talalelei Lealao-Taiao, 53, of Sacramento, died. - Sacramento Bee
