At least 13 people were transported to the hospital Thursday after two buses collided on the 10 Freeway in East Los Angeles.
According to ABC 7 News, the crash occurred in the eastbound lanes of the 10 Freeway near Soto Street around 10:30 a.m.
Preliminary reports say a car left the roadway and struck a tree before crossing back into traffic. In the backup caused by that accident, a Greyhound intercity bus rear-ended a Foothill Transit commuter bus.
13 ambulances responded to the accident, and roughly 40 people were assessed at the scene. 13 people were transported to area hospitals and at least one person was transported to an ambulance on a stretcher.
The crash remains under investigation.
