110 Freeway accident scene
A man who was driving 80 mph on the busway of the 110 Freeway and plowed into six people waiting for a bus failed a field sobriety test, authorities said Thursday afternoon.

Stephen L. Lubin, 51, of Sun Valley was arrested Wednesday afternoon at the scene of the accident on the northbound 110 Freeway near the 105 Freeway in South Los Angeles, said California Highway Patrol Officer Christian Cracraft.

Five men and a woman were critically injured in the incident, the Los Angeles Fire Department said. The victims were waiting for a bus when they were struck about 3:15 p.m. Lubin also was injured.

Earlier Thursday, Metro chief Art Leahy said at the agency's board meeting that he has requested a review that will examine the transitway, signage and other safety issues on the freeway. Leahy said he wanted a report within 60 days.
