Three juveniles have been arrested in a hit-and-run accident that killed a pedestrian and injured nearly two dozen students on board a school bus traveling through Boyle Heights on Monday afternoon.
Two teenage boys in a black BMW had fled the accident scene after running a red light and triggering the accident. They were quickly apprehended by construction workers who had heard the crash. Later that evening, the California Highway Patrol said a third youth surfaced at an area hospital seeking treatment for injuries, apparently suffered in the crash.
The three youths, all juveniles, are hospitalized but will be taken to juvenile detention after being treated for their injuries. Police are also investigating whether the driver of the BMW was under the influence at the time of the crash.
The bus was carrying 46 students and 20 students along with the bus driver were taken to area hospitals.
