At least 14 hurt as MTA bus is part of multi-vehicle ‘rollover collision’ in South L.A.

At least 14 people were injured in a multi-vehicle collision Thursday afternoon in South Los Angeles that involved a Metro bus, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The Fire Department issued an alert at 3:40 p.m. of a “multi-vehicle collision, with rollover, that included an MTA bus with passengers,” off Crenshaw Boulevard at 39th Street in Baldwin Hills.

Firefighters and paramedics were on the scene and had assessed and treated 14 people, including bus riders and other vehicle passengers, according to a 5 p.m. update. Three people were taken to hospitals in “moderate condition” and six in “fair condition.”

“The rest declined ambulance transport to an area hospital after being assessed on scene,” officials said.

It is unclear how many vehicles were involved in the crash, although NBC Los Angeles reported that at least four were involved.
