Calif. tour bus collision death toll rises to 8

LOMA LINDA — California authorities say the death toll from last weekend’s tour bus collision has risen to eight with the death of the driver of a pickup truck struck by the bus.

A San Bernardino County coroner’s official says 72-year-old Fred Bailey Richardson of San Bernardino died at 6:39 a.m. Wednesday at Loma Linda University Medical Center.

Richardson was driving a landscaping service truck that was struck by the out-of-control bus Sunday night. The crash crushed the pickup.

The other seven fatalities were people who died at the scene.
