LOS ANGELES, California (March 29, 2016) — Seven people suffered moderate to major injuries Monday night in a fiery MTA bus crash on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, according to news reports.
The collision took place in South Los Angeles about 6:52 p.m. last night and involved multiple vehicles in front of 1674 West Martin Luther King Boulevard. One of the four vehicles involved became completely engulfed in flames and the blaze also damaged part of the bus.
Good Samaritans and two police officers together removed some of the injured from the burning car prior to the arrival of firefighters at the scene. Their efforts likely saved these people’s lives.
The Los Angles Fire Department and paramedics responded and transported six people who were injured including two with major injuries, but a seventh person refused transport. The bus driver was alone on the bus with no passengers.
