Dump Truck MTA Bus Accident in Hollywood Leaves at least 25 Injured
In a horrific scene from what typically would be expected in a Hollywood movie, a dump truck, an MTA Bus and a BMW sedan were involved in a horrific accident leaving at least 19 injured. Reports indicate that an unattended dump truck rolled down a hill and struck an MTA bus which was headed westbound on Hollywood Boulevard at around 8:00am on Tuesday. The force of the dump truck pushed the bus, which had at least 30 passengers on board, into the opposite eastbound lane of Hollywood Blvd causing a head-on collision with the BMW. The driver of the BMW and her daughter were injured and were trapped until rescue workers got them out.
CAUSE OF THE CRASH
Early reports indicate that a dump truck was left unattended at an incline. The dump truck rolled down the hill causing this chain-reaction resulting in many injuries. One can only speculate because an investigation is ongoing – but it could be assumed that either the emergency brakes were set or failed.
