"Ohhhhh, the trolley at the grove ran off the tracks! Someone was ambulanced away," reported breesays via Twitter as she snapped the above photo.

At 9:39 p.m., the trolley at The Grove/Farmer's Market lost its brakes hitting a large planter at the end of the tracks near the clock tower. It did not come off the tracks or strike anyone, according to d'Lisa Davies of the Los Angeles Fire Department. However, six minor injuries, which included four children, were reported by KNBC's 11 p.m. news.
