Driver jumps out before bus plunges off bridge onto 110 Freeway

A Montebello transit bus plunged off a bridge over the 110 Freeway in downtown Los Angeles on Friday morning.

The bus, which had no passengers on it, broke through a barrier on the 6th Street bridge and landed on the northbound 110 at the 3rd Street off-ramp.

The bus driver apparently realized the brakes weren't working and was able to jump out before the bus rolled off the bridge.

The 6th Street bridge was closed, as was the 3rd Street ramp while a heavy tow truck was brought in.
