13 in Hospital After Greyhound Bus Crashes Into Foothill Transit Bus on 10 Freeway
A Greyhound intercity bus crashed into the rear of a Foothill Transit “Silver Streak” commuter bus yesterday on the 10 Freeway in Boyle Heights. According to news reports, the buses were heading eastbound in the Express Lanes near Soto Street around 11am when the rear-end collision occurred. Authorities have speculated that wet roads from rainy weather may have contributed to the crash. Paramedics examined 40 people on the scene, and 13 were transported to area hospitals for further treatment. No one was killed, and emergency personnel indicated that the injuries were not expected to be life-threatening.

News helicopter footage revealed that the right front bumper of the Greyhound bus impacted the left rear bumper of the Foothill Transit bus. It is not yet clear if the Greyhound driver was attempting to maneuver around the other bus, or if either bus was braking at the time of the collision.
According to the California Highway Patrol, two other accidents were reported in the vicinity shortly before the bus crash. A vehicle on the 10 Freeway hit a downed tree, and a pickup truck heading westbound near Soto Street crashed after veering over an embankment.
