Towed Plane and Bus Collide at LAX Airport Five Injured

 February 13, 2023

When a plane hit a shuttle bus, Friday at Los Angeles Airport, several people were hurt. This was the third similar incident in the past month.

According to the Independent, who reported the incident on Saturday, when an American Airlines plane, was being towed from a gate to a parking lot, the front of the plane collided with the bus. The bus was said to have with what appeared to be a cracked windshield, and the underbelly of the nose of the plane appeared damaged.

LAX Airport announced in a social media post on Saturday at 1:04 a.m., that he incident caused injuries to approximately five people. The post read-

“We thank our partners @LAFD for quickly responding and treating passengers from the bus. Other LAX operations remain normal,”

A tug driver was taken to the hospital in moderate condition, while a bus driver and two passengers were also transported, but listed in fair condition, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department. Crews treated a fifth person at the scene, who was inside the plane when the incident occurred.

According to KTLA, aerial video footage over the southern side of the runways, shows multiple emergency vehicles and crews assessing the damage. One of the outlet’s reporters said, that many vehicles travel alongside aircraft in that area, so it is a “very busy place to be and these things can happen.”

Social media users, were quick to reply to the airport’s announcement with their opinions on the incident-

  • One user wrote - “Wtf is going on with US airlines and airports? It’s like a banana republic. Get it together. US infrastructure is in disarray. Vote Republican.”
  • Another user speculated - “I think hiring standards have been lowered overall and we are all paying the price.”

Meanwhile, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), under President Biden’s (D) leadership, has focused on “LGBTQI+” inclusivity, and “gender-neutral” language, while struggling to manage commercial air traffic across the nation, according to a Breitbart News report last month. The outlet said-

“In keeping with the Biden administration’s focus on ‘equity’, as opposed to the outdated ‘equality’, the FAA has also focused on creating a more ‘inclusive’ community of drone operators, a ‘safe space’ for Hispanic employees, and ‘herstory’ for women,”

Literally, the FAA is not focusing on the state of transportation safety, or lack thereof, that currently exists. Instead they are allowing accidents and needless injuries, such as this, to pervade what should be a safe space for the business of transportation. Who cares about inclusivity when you could die just being on a bus that traverses the tarmac? It is beyond believable how ridiculous this all is. Insanity reigns in the Biden administration and ridiculousness is pervasive.

“Those who are serious in ridiculous matters will be ridiculous in serious matters.”
