LOS ANGELES — A jet being towed on a taxiway collided with a bus at Los Angeles International Airport late Friday, injuring five people. There was no interruption to airport operations.
LAX Airport said on Twitter that the jet was being towed from a gate to a parking area when it “made contact” with a shuttle bus.
The Los Angeles Fire Department said four people were hospitalized in the “low-speed collision.” Another person was treated at the scene.
There was only one person on the plane, a worker, when the collision occurred, LAFD said.
Airport services were not disrupted, NBC Los Angeles reported.
