A school bus struck a power pole in the Elysian Park area Wednesday, and four girls were taken to a hospital for treatment.
The single-vehicle crash occurred about 7:30 a.m. in the 500 block of West Solano Avenue, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
Nine children were aboard the bus, and four of them — girls about 12 years of age — were taken to a hospital in fair condition, the LAFD reported.
The circumstances of the crash were under investigation, although the driver reported experiencing brake failure, according to broadcast reports.
The bus was a charter — not an LAUSD vehicle.
