MTA bus driver falls asleep, crashes into bus stop, CHP says
After the 1:30 a.m. crash in South Los Angeles, the 40-year-old driver was taken to Memorial Hospital of Gardena to treat cuts on her hands, said Sgt. Scott Hawkins of the California Highway Patrol.
There were no passengers on the bus or at the bus stop, Hawkins said.
The bus was traveling north on Main Street near 135th Street in the unincorporated neighborhood of Willowbrook when the vehicle careened to the right, knocking down the signs and bringing down a streetlight connected to overhead electrical wires, Hawkins said.
An Edison utility crew was dispatched to shut down power temporarily and clean up the electrical wires, Hawkins said. An L.A. County crew went out to clean up downed trees.
