Downtown LA Metro Bus Accident Crash 8-30-2017

2 In Serious Condition After Downtown L.A. Bus Crash; Police Suspect One Driver Ran a Red Light

Our law firm is currently investigating an accident that occurred on August 30, 2017.

According to LAPD authorities, seven people were injured, two left in serious condition, when a L.A. Metro bus collided with an SUV in Downtown Los Angeles, early Wednesday morning. The accident occurred at approximately 1:30 a.m. near Broadway and Olympic Boulevard. Authorities were put on alert after they suspected that one of the drivers ran a red light. However, they were unable to determine which driver ran the light or caused the damaging accident.

According to the Los Angeles County Fire Department, during the crash, the Metro bus struck and toppled a streetlight before riding onto the sidewalk. The crash also caused damage to a nearby building, denting the metal bars of its exterior.

Both the driver of the SUV and one person on the bus were left in serious condition after the crash, although their injuries are were not considered life-threatening. Local authorities reported that only six people were on the bus at the time of the incident, and five of them were in ‘fair condition,’ after the crash. However, all seven people involved in the crash were left injured in some capacity. The front windshield of the bus was smashed in, and the front end was left mangled. The SUV was also left with frontal damage, as it was struck by a falling street pole knocked over by the careening bus.

One of the witnesses inside the building, Jesus Rincon, said that people were not allowed to enter the building after the accident, as officials from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) were expected to arrive later in the day. A red flyer from OSHA was later seen in the building, and the agency is expected to perform a thorough inspection of the building’s structural integrity before anyone else can go inside.
