A female student from Burroughs High School was on the bus that collided with a FedEx freight truck in a fiery crash in Northern California on Thursday evening, killing 10 people and injuring dozens more.
Los Angeles Unified officials said Friday that 19 of its students were aboard the bus that collided with the truck.
The Burbank student, whose name was not immediately released, was transported to a hospital, “but she will be fine,” said Burbank Unified Supt. Jan Britz.
“She’s fine physically, but it’s a strong emotional trauma to the family to live through,” Britz said, adding that the school district will provide the student’s family with mental and emotional support, if needed.
