Echo Park  —  It’s not uncommon for big trucks or buses to get stuck at the bottom of the hill where Echo Park Avenue and Cerro Gordo Street meet. But two big vehicles at the same time — and of the same color?

That’s apparently what happened late this afternoon when a school bus and a box truck got wedged on either side of Echo Park Avenue as they tried to drive up Cerro Gordo.

The bus apparently got stuck about 15 to 20 minutes before the bus, said Marcus Darling, one of several people who were taking photos of the mishap.

“Love that they are the same color.”
