California Fiery Bus Crash

California Fiery Bus Crash

California Fiery Bus Crash

April 10 (Day 100, Max Divine Good Production):  A FedEx tractor-trailer hit a bus full of high school students head on, and both vehicles exploded in flames on Interstate 5 near Orland, California.  The southbound FedEx tractor-trailer crossed the median, and then sideswiped a northbound passenger car and hit the northbound bus head-on.  Those killed included the FedEx and bus drivers, 3 adult chaperones, and 5 students.  Over 30 were injured in the wreck that occurred at 5:42 PM PDT (1242 GMT).  The high school students were headed north from the Los Angeles area to visit Humboldt State University.

California Bus Wreck Chart

California Wreck ChartThe Chart at the time of the California wreck contained a Grand Cross and two rectangles.  The Grand Cross is the most intensive sign of suffering in a chart.  The two rectangles symbolized the bus and FedEx truck that were involved in the wreck.  The bus ended up after the wreck pointing east and west, and the truck pointed southeast.  The Chart of the planets overhead only gives a symbolic representation of this, so the picture on the Chart is not identical with a photograph from the ground.

The Sun was going down in Pisces along with the Mediator and Savior Planets.  The Savior in Pisces symbolizes the Savior of a congregation, which in this case corresponds to the bus of students.  Pisces corresponds to the Criminal Justice System and Law Enforcement.  The Moon had just risen in Leo, for a politician.

The Ascendant was Virgo with the Red Planet, for a bloody son, corresponding to the students injured and killed in the wreck.

Midheaven was in Gemini near the Almighty God, for a glorious Marriage Feast of the Lamb.  Gemini corresponds to California and Israel.  And the Bottom of Heaven was in Sagittarius, for the doom of an army, which in this case corresponds to the bus load of students.  The Last Adam was also in Sagittarius, for an enemy attack.

Aquarius had just set.  It contained the Redeemer Planet, for being redeemed from Sheol, or the grave, and the Morning Star, for a forerunner, corresponding to the white passenger car that was in front of the bus.  The car was sideswiped by the FedEx truck.


The fiery crash in California on I-5 was sudden cataclysmic judgment.  It was Fire Testing at evening that included the death of children, corresponding to the two previous judgments the day before in Florida and Pennsylvania.  The death of children is a judgment of Jezebel (Rev 2:23).  The number, 5, from I-5 symbolizes a giant, such as Baal.  After the wreck all lanes of I-5 were blocked, symbolizing a strategic failure.  Since the location of California corresponds to Israel in Asia, this was a sign of the strategic failure of the Peace Talks between Israel and the Palestinians sponsored by the US State Department.

The wreck was on Day 100, for maximum Divine Good production.  The Stock Market plunged and continued down the next day.  California in the West corresponds to the double blessing and the financial prosperity of the nation.
