Fourteen people were hurt when a Long Beach Transit bus collided with a car and a building around 3:15 p.m. today, according to authorities.
Police say the driver of a sedan was speeding southbound on California Avenue when they ran a stop sign at South Street and crashed into the bus. The collision, according to authorities, then caused both vehicles to smash into a two-story building, which is made up of homes and a restaurant.
Images from the scene show a bus that smashed through the front wall of the Boujie Crab restaurant on South Street near California Avenue. A crumpled gray car can be seen crushed between the building and the bus.
Fire officials said they had to extricate two people trapped in the wreckage.
Of the 14 people hurt, 10 were rushed to the hospital, where six of them were in serious condition, according to the Long Beach Fire Department.
Long Beach police said they have shut down South Street between Myrtle Avenue and Lewis Avenue as they investigate.
