Overturned Big Rig Accident Just After 2:00 AM Causes Major Damage to Honda, Blocks All Los Angeles Eastbound 10 Lanes
Big Rig Overturns Blocking All Los Angeles Eastbound 10 Lanes – The eastbound 10 Freeway was completely shut down earlier this morning in Los Angeles, California due to an overturned big rig. The truck was blocking all of the lanes on the 10 Freeway heading towards the Inland Empire in central Los Angeles. According to the California Highway Patrol, the clean up of the accident started just after 2:00 a.m.
Officer Tony Polizzi with the CHP reported that the accident was called in just before 2 a.m. near the Santa Fe Avenue marker, and they closed all lanes of the major heavily traveled freeway. The Fire Department and Paramedics were on the traffic accident scene, but there were no reported injuries, according to Officer Polizzi.
The cause of the LA freeway accident is still under investigation, and there is no answer yet as to what caused the truck to overturn and block all lanes of the freeway. According to the CHP, they are looking into a white Honda that suffered “major” front end property damage. There were other vehicles involved and effected by the turn over accident, but the details have not yet been reported. All eastbound traffic was diverted to use Santa Fe Avenue and morning commuters were advised to find other routes to their destinations.
