According to the LAPD, a 22-year-old man, whose identity has not been released, was severely injured after he was run over by a "party bus" on Saturday night in Hollywood.

The individual had been a passenger on the bus as it stopped at various night clubs, but had become separated from the vehicle. The victim tried to catch up with the ride around 11:25 p.m. as it was travelling on McCadden Place but lost his footing and got caught under the bus' wheels, reports LA Now.

Said Murrel Pettway of LAPD’s West Traffic division,“Somehow, when he got run over, he ended up getting into the tire well...He was severely injured and he’s now at Cedars-Sinai [Medical Center],” notes LA Now.
