Bus Accident in Newport Center

The Newport Beach Fire Department responded to an incident involving an Orange County Transit Authority bus Sunday night.

At approximately 7 p.m., an OCTA passenger bus was traveling on Newport Center Drive when it veered off the road and through a parking lot.

It continued up an embankment, finally coming to a stop on a concrete planter, just a few feet from the building at 700 Newport Center Drive.

There were 10 people on the bus including the driver. When the Newport Beach Fire Department arrived a multiple casualty incident was declared to handle the six injured passengers.

The injured people were triaged, treated and transported to local hospitals.

The Newport Beach Fire Department responded with a battalion chief, one fire engine, one truck company and two paramedic units. Two shoreline ambulances also responded.
