    Jennifer Bonilla, a senior at Dorsey High School, was identified as one of the victims of Thursday's deadly tour bus crash in Northern California.

    A senior from Dorsey High School was identified as one of the 10 dead in the violent Northern California bus crash Thursday.

    Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent John Deasy confirmed Saturday that Jennifer Bonilla died in the bus that was carrying Los Angeles area high school students to Humboldt State University when it was struck by a FedEx delivery truck that crossed lanes of traffic on Interstate 5.

    Bonilla's mother notified Dorsey High's principal that her daughter was on the bus that crashed. A crisis center will be open to students on the Dorsey campus starting Monday at 9 a.m.

    A donation site was set up for Bonilla by Nancy Perdomo-Browning, a co-worker of the victim’s sister.

    “Any financial assistance you are able to give will be greatly appreciated and updated information will be posted on this site as arrangements are made,” Perdomo-Browning wrote on the site. “The funds will be used by her mother to assist with burial and additional arrangements as necessary in relation to such.”
