Seven injured in Metro bus collision in South Los Angeles
The crash at 2:24 p.m. occurred when a car turned right in front of the bus, said Metro spokesman Rick Jager.The bus careened into a utility pole on the sidewalk and the car rolled over, he said.
None of the seven people transported to local hospitals -- four males and three females -- incurred life-threatening injuries, said Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey.
It wasn't immediately known whether the injured were bus passengers or occupants of the car or both, nor whether the bus operator or any pedestrians were involved, said Officer Karen Rayner of the Los Angeles Police Department, which also responded to the scene.
