The fronts of both the car and bus severely damaged. The injured people were sent to the hospital. Five adults, aged 30 to 88 years old, were in serious condition, authorities said. However, it was not clear whether the injured people were all on the bus or in the car. The bus was carrying 37 passengers back from a church event at the Forum in Inglewood. “Upon arrival, firefighters found debris strewn across both sides of the freeway, causing an immediate full closure,” the Los Angeles Fire Department said in a statement. The CHP is investigating the cause of the crash.
The incident is the latest multi-victim crash to make headlines in recent weeks. Earlier this month, 18 people died in Schoharie, New York, when the 2011 Ford Excursion limousine they were riding in failed to stop at an intersection, causing it to collide with a parked 2015 Toyota Highlander and ultimately fall into a ravine.
