Plane Collides With Shuttle Bus At LAX, Hospitalizing Four
The Los Angeles Fire Department on Friday reported an American Airlines plane collided with a shuttle bus at LAX International Airport.
The collision occurred late Friday night and resulted in four passengers being hospitalized.
LAFD reported the collision occurred at very low speeds due to the fact the American Airlines plane was being tugged from a gate to a parking area.
While the plane was being tugged it swiped a shuttle bus which resulted in the bus driver, two passengers on the shuttle bus and the tug driver all being hospitalized.
A worker on board the plane was also injured but refused to go to the hospital.
Here’s the aftermath:

Accidents on the tarmacs have risen in the lasts several months.
In January a JetBlue plane crashed into another parked plane at JFK international airport.
JFK had a small collision between two planes. A JetBlue aircraft clipped a parked aircraft.https://t.co/dfIAwTHA95
The @FAANews must be beside itself as this is the second incident within a few days.

On last Christmas The Gateway Pundit reported 160 passengers onboard a JetBlue aircraft evacuated after the plane caught fire at JFK.
