Orange Line Crash in Valley Village

Update, 5:05 P.M.: One of the patients is in critical condition according to ABC7 on air news. The Los Angeles Fire Department reports that the all patients are from the bus including the driver.

Yesterday it was a close call with the Blue Line, but today is the real deal. An Orange Line Metroliner bus has collided with an automobile on the 12700 block of Chandler Blvd. between Coldwater Cyn. and Whitsett. No further details on the cause of the crash (though we suspect the driver of the car, not the bus as it has been in the last 10 or so times) and four patients are being assessed. Expect delays on your Orange Line commute home tonight.
