NextImg:Los Angeles International Airport collision between plane and bus leaves at least 5 injured - WFIN Local News

A collision between a passenger bus and a commercial plane on the Los Angeles International Airport tarmac late Friday night left several people injured, officials said.

The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a call at LAX around 10 p.m., where they found at least five people injured as a result of the crash. Four were then transported to an area hospital, according to FOX 11 Los Angeles.

Authorities said the crash happened at a slow rate of speed as the jet — an empty American Airlines A321 jet — was being towed away from a gate.

“A jet being towed tonight from a gate to a parking area made contact with a shuttle bus, resulting in injuries to about 5 people. We thank our partners @LAFD for quickly responding and treating passengers from the bus. Other LAX operations remain normal,” LAX said in a statement.
