No serious injuries occur in Friday incident
On Friday a low-speed collision occurred between an airfield shuttle bus and an American Airlines jet being towed on the ground at LAX.
The incident occurred at 09:59 p.m. on February 10. According to the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD), five patients were assessed by EMS and four were transported to local hospitals. The tug driver was transported in moderate condition, while the bus driver and two passengers were taken to hospitals in fair condition. The sole person on board the plane (a worker) was given medical treatment but declined transport.

“We thank our partners @LAFD for quickly responding and treating passengers from the bus,” LAX said in a tweet.
