Federal officials are investigating a collision between a shuttle bus and an American Airlines plane being towed at Los Angeles International Airport.

Five people suffered injuries in the Friday night strike – the latest in a string of unusual incidents at major airports in just over a month.

How did the crash happen?
The plane, an Airbus A321 jet, was being towed on a taxiway about 10 p.m. local time when it hit a bus, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

The plane was being pulled from a gate to a parking area when it swiped the bus transporting people between terminals, officials said.In all four people were taken to hospitals after the “low-speed collision," the department said in a news release. The driver of the tug pulling the plane was in moderate condition and the driver and two passengers on the bus were in fair condition, LAFD reported.
