At least 14 injured as MTA bus part of multi-vehicle ‘rollover collision’ in South Los Angeles


At least 14 people were injured in a multi-car collision Thursday afternoon in South Los Angeles involving a Metro bus, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Fire officials issued an alert at 3:40 p.m. for a “multi-vehicle rollover collision, including an MTA bus with passengers,” on Crenshaw Boulevard at 39th Street in Baldwin Hills.

Firefighters and paramedics were on scene and assessed and treated 14 people, including bus passengers and other vehicle passengers, according to a 5 p.m. update. Three people were hospitalized in “moderate condition” and six in “fair condition.”

“The others refused ambulance transport to an area hospital after being evaluated on scene,” officials said.

It’s unclear how many vehicles in total were involved in the crash, although NBC Los Angeles reported that at least four vehicles were involved.

Aerial footage from NBC showed a badly damaged car flipped on its side in the middle of the street and a pickup truck with its side crumpled. The MTA bus does not appear to be seriously damaged. Another car was reportedly towed from the scene.

At least seven fire trucks and ambulances could be seen in aerial footage.
