ELYSIAN HEIGHTS –– A charter bus out of Santa Barbara became the most recent large vehicle to run into trouble at the intersection of Echo Park Avenue and Cerro Gordo, stranding a group of passengers at the corner late Saturday afternoon.
In late June, an L.A. County Sheriff’s Department bus got stuck after bottoming out in the same spot as it headed eastbound down a steep section of Cerro Gordo. The Santa Barbara bus got stuck as it was headed west on the same street. Where was it going? One resident said it looked like the group, which eventually was seen walking down the street, may have been going to a Dodger game. Hope they made it on time.
