The Los Angeles Fire Department is reporting a five-car pileup on the 101 north freeway at Barham over the Cahuenga Pass. Luckily, the three injuries are minor, but that means three blocked lanes and a Sigalert.

Earlier this morning during the 5:00 a.m. hour near Olvera Street and Union Station, a woman was hit and killed by a Metro bus. The crash is still under investigation and details are pending.

This is the third major Metro bus incident in the past few weeks taking place in the city limits of Los Angeles. The first was on January 27th when a bus crashed into a donut shop injuring eight, the second was yesterday where a crash led to twelve injuries.
