“After conducting the triage operation, firefighters determined there were a total of 23 passengers plus the driver on board,” said LAFD spokesperson Margaret Stewart.
Two patients were transported to a local hospital in serious condition and seven patients were transported with minor, non-life threatening injuries, the LAFD reported.
No one on the ground at the airport was injured in the incident.
