Police: Hit-And-Run Driver Hops On Bus To Flee Crash

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say a suspected hit-and-run driver hopped on a city bus to flee the scene of a downtown Los Angeles crash.

Police Sgt. Gregory Hoyte says a Hyundai and Toyota Prius collided Sunday morning after one of the cars ran a red light.


The driver of the Hyundai got out of his car and was seen boarding a nearby Metro bus. It was not known where the bus was headed.

Hoyte says the driver of the Prius and its two passengers suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to a local hospital. All three are in stable condition.

The Los Angeles Times reports the Hyundai was impounded for evidence and detectives with the Central Traffic Division are investigating.
