It was bound to happen as people get used to the new traffic patterns.
Hopefully this’ll be a good warning to everyone to pay a little more attention while driving around the new Busway.

The LAFD blog says
The driver and sole occupant of the sedan, a 78 year-old Woodland Hills woman, was transported in fair condition to Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Mission Hills by LAFD ambulance. In light of the damage to her vehicle, Firefighter/Paramedics treating the woman are confident that her seat-belt use combined with the deployment of her vehicle’s airbag minimized her injuries.
What do you think the odds are the driver was on the way to a farmer’s market?
