LOS ANGELES — A 34-year-old man was killed after being ejected from a limousine bus in the Los Angeles area, police said. A 30-year-old woman who also fell from the limo bus survived. The 1999 Ford limousine bus was carrying 17 passengers on the Long Beach Freeway when the right-side door suddenly flew open in the East Los Angeles area, the California Highway Patrol reported.

Three passengers were dancing on the bus when the door opened and two of them tumbled out, according to the Highway Patrol. The vehicle that hit the man did not stop, and authorities said its driver's identity was not immediately known.
