Joe and Bonnie Duran, the Seattle-area couple who were in the car, said, like the bus, they were heading north on Interstate 5 about 100 miles north of Sacramento on Thursday afternoon. Bonnie Duran, who was driving, told federal authorities and KNBC-TV in Los Angeles that flames were coming from the lower rear of the truck cab. “I just looked to the left, and there it was coming through right at me at an angle. I can tell I wasn’t going to outrun him, so I just kind of turned to the right and he hit me,” she told the television station. “It was in flames as it came through the median. … It wasn’t like the whole thing was engulfed. It was coming up wrapping around him.” Initial reports by police made no mention of a fire before the crash. Officer Lacey Heitman, a spokeswoman for California Highway Patrol, said she could not confirm if Duran’s account is accurate until all evidence was gathered. Federal investigators also recovered an electronic control module from the bus, but do not know what information it contains.

She was taken to Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Santa Rosa. A third car, a 2011 Hyundai Elantra, driven by Emily Martin, 31, of Sacramento was heading south directly behind Watanabe and served to avoid the crash, hitting a large landscaping rock in the front of the Sweet Lane Wholesale Nursery. Martin did not require immediate medical attention but said her car had to be towed. Emergency responders had to remove the Civics front wheel and front and rear doors to get Watanabe out. The CHP said alcohol and drugs did not appear to be a contributing factor to the accident. A three-car accident closed Petaluma Hill Road between Laurel Drive and East Cotati Avenue for about an hour Saturday afternoon, according to the CHP and emergency dispatch. Jamie Watanabe of Windsor had to be extricated from a silver Honda Civic that sustained significant front-end damage. Watanabe, who the CHP said was about 20, was taken by ambulance with leg and wrist injuries to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital. The accident occurred about 2:18 p.m. Saturday when a 2003 Honda Pilot, driven by Karyn Carillo, 66, of Petaluma, was going south on Petaluma Hill Road and veered to avoid stopped traffic, partially entering the northbound lane, where she clipped Watanabes Civic, causing both cars to spin out, the CHP said. Carillos ankle was broken in the crash, the CHP said. She was taken to Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Santa Rosa.

Suspect surrenders in deadly Florida day care center car crash
Life is short and Id rather be living life instead of being in my bed all day crying, said Alexie Schneider. On the night of September 22, 2014, Alexie Schneider, 20, was driving back to her school in Grand Rapids from Flint. While on the phone with her boyfriend, she veered off the road and crashed into a guardrail. Feeling remarkably well after the crash, doctors conducted a few tests just to make sure she was alright, and thats when they discovered several tumors. They usually dont catch it until you start having kidney failure and stuff. Usually when they catch this type of cancer, its usually too late, said Alexie. Alexies parents Cindy and John thought their daughter was in the clear, until doctors came in with the bad news. Well she has cancer, and Im like cancer? Where did that come from? Cindy Schneider recalled. Since October, Alexie has had multiple surgeries, including having the tumors and 40 percent of her stomach removed. For her parents, its been a emotional journey. Unreal.

Robert Corchado, 28, turned himself in at the Orange County Jail, said Cindy Williams, a spokeswoman for the Florida Highway Patrol. Police launched a manhunt for Corchado after the crash on Wednesday. He is charged in an arrest warrant with leaving the scene of a crash involving death and seriously bodily injury, a felony. The warrant sets his initial bond at $100,000. Williams said Corchado was considered a fugitive and could face further charges. Corchado is believed to be the driver of a Dodge Durango SUV that triggered the crash by rear-ending another car as it slowed to turn into the day care entrance near Orlando. The second car, a Toyota Solara, jumped the curb before going through the parking lot and into the front of the KinderCare day care center, striking several children and stopping at the back of the building. Williams identified the 4-year-old girl who died as Lily Quintus of Orlando. The driver of the Durango fled the scene and was later found parked at a home.
