Investigators are looking into a third commercial plane crash in a month. The most recent one happened Friday night at LAX, and several people were hurt.
On the LAX tarmac, an American Airlines commercial plane crashed into a passenger bus. Five people were hurt.
The empty plane was being towed from a gate to a parking lot when it crashed into the shuttle bus, damaging the front end and windows.
Four people were taken to a nearby hospital, where they were treated for injuries that did not threaten their lives. The fifth person was taken care of at the scene and sent on their way.

Authorities are now looking into what caused the crash, which comes after a near-miss at JFK Airport in New York City last month and a similar one at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in Texas last Tuesday.
In the JFK incident, an American Airlines plane crossed a runway without getting permission from air traffic control. This stopped a Delta Air Lines flight from taking off, officials said.
Luckily, the two planes did not crash into each other, but they were only 1400 feet apart. No one was hurt, thank goodness. The tweet from Flightradar24 may be seen below:

In the Austin incident, a Southwest passenger jet came within 100 feet of hitting a FedEx cargo plane, but a quick-thinking pilot stopped the disaster.
