Bizarre bus accident ends in death

NORTH HILLS The incident happened in North Hills as the tour bus from Mexico was approaching the Nordhoff Street off-ramp on the 405 Freeway at about 7:20 p.m. Wednesday.

The bus developed braking problems, and a passenger in the front became agitated.

He demanded off, and the driver opened the doors. The passenger jumped, fell and hit the pavement hard.

That passenger, a 22-year-old man from Mexico, later died at a hospital.

It's not clear whether the bus had come to a complete stop when he jumped.
