Long Beach Transit Bus Collides With Car

Posted on October 19, 2012

Car accidents are traumatic experiences that should never occur. Although car accidents can be unavoidable, they are usually preventable, especially when they involve a car and a bus. When car accidents do occur, however, the results can be devastating.

Ten people sustained moderate injuries Thursday morning after two cars collided in the intersection of Atlantic Avenue and Seventh Street, where a city bus had to make an emergency stop.

A late-model Audi, which was traveling westbound on Seventh, reportedly hit a compact Ford vehicle on the passenger side as it was moving southbound, injuring its driver. The driver of that vehicle is an unidentified woman.

The bus was unable to avoid the collision and struck the Audi, jolting many of the passengers.

They were moved to a temporary staging area outside of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church at the northwest corner of the intersection.

While awaiting transport to nearby hospitals – Long Beach Memorial Medical Center, St. Mary Medical Center and Pacific Hospital Long Beach – paramedics and other emergency responders provided assistance.

The driver of the bus was also taken to the hospital. The condition of the driver is not known.

One of the injured bus passengers was a wheelchair-bound man. The condition of the passenger is not known.

The compact Ford swerved onto the sidewalk at the southwest corner of Atlantic and stopped near the porch of an apartment building. No one was injured.

One of the passengers called his family on a cell phone and reported that he had sustained a neck injury.
