Fiery Bus Accident in Alhambra Causes Fatality

A driver died when his car rear-ended a stalled Metro Silver Line bus and caught fire Tuesday on the westbound 10 Freeway in Alhambra.

The coroner’s office has not yet identified the man. The bus driver and four passengers were not injured, according to Jose Ubaldo of Metro. He said the bus stalled because of an electrical problem.

The fatal collision occurred on the westbound 10 Freeway, east of Fremont Avenue at 8:10 p.m.

A Kia Optima in the express lane crashed into the stalled bus, according to a California Highway Patrol statement. The Kia caught fire and the driver was unable to get out, the CHP said.

Firefighters pronounced the man dead at the scene. He was the sole occupant of the car, CHP spokeswoman Officer Gina Jojola said.

Authorities don’t know if alcohol was a factor in the crash.
