Car Strikes Bus Stop in L.A., Killing 1

A car plowed into a bus stop Sunday, killing one person and injuring five others, authorities said.

The six were waiting for a bus at West Century Blvd. and Vermont
Ave. in South Los Angeles when the out-of-control vehicle struck them at 7:09 a.m., said Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman D'Lisa Davies.

One woman, believed to be in her 20s, was killed, Davies said. A 20-year-old man suffered severe head wounds and was not expected to survive, she said.

The car pinned an elderly woman against a wrought-iron fence until she was freed by rescuers. She was in critical condition at a hospital, Davies said.

Two other men, ages 19 and 21, and another woman also were transported to a hospital but their condition was unknown, Davies said.

Authorities provided no immediate information on the driver.

Century Boulevard was shut down for a few blocks in either direction as investigators tried to determine the cause of the crash, Davies said.
