27 hurt in 3-vehicle Hollywood crash
Firefighters had to extricate a woman who was stuck in the wreckage
LOS ANGELES — An untended dump truck rolled down a Hollywood street Tuesday and smashed into a commuter bus, which then collided head-on with a car and left 27 people injured, authorities said.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority bus carrying 25 people was westbound on Hollywood Boulevard shortly before 8 a.m. when the truck T-boned it, creasing the metal side and shattering windows, authorities said.
In trying to avoid it, the bus veered into eastbound lanes and collided with a sedan driven by a woman taking her 10-year-old daughter to school, city Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey said.
