Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, CA – Serious Bus Accident Injures 25 People on Hwy 405

Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, CA (October 17, 2018) – The California Highway Patrol reported that twenty-five people were hospitalized in Los Angeles as a result of a terrifying bus crash. According to officials, the crash was reported early Wednesday morning on October 17. At this time, there are no details identifying the injured victims or the drivers involved in the crash.Woodland Hills Bus Accident with serious iinjuries

According to investigators, the 405 freeway was shut down for hours following a horrific collision involving a bus. A recently released dash cam video confirms that the bus darted to the right, bounced off a freeway barrier, and proceeded to shoot back to the left before barreling through a concrete median into oncoming traffic. Twenty-five people sustained injuries as a result of this violent collision. These injuries likely occurred due to lack of seat belts on the bus.

Investigators are relying heavily on witnesses and video from other vehicles to help them determine the cause of the accident. Paramedics were dispatched to the crash site where they were able to render aid to injured victims. First responders transported twenty-five injured victims to a local hospital for treatment of their injuries, ranging from minor to serious in nature. At this time, only one woman remains hospitalized.  That person has been identified as the bus driver. Investigators are setting up forensic vehicle analysis to see if they can rule out a mechanical cause of the crash.

At this time, investigators are looking for the probable cause of the accident. As more evidence continues to surface, more information will be released to public sources.
