Semi Truck Crash on 10 Freeway Transition in Downtown L.A.
Earlier this week, there was a semi-truck crash in the westbound lanes of the 10 Freeway in downtown L.A. According to KTLA News Channel Five, the wreck happened near the northbound 101 Freeway transition. For currently unknown reasons, the semi-truck overturned in the roadway and spilled its load onto the freeway transition lanes. The truck was hauling plywood at the time of the crash.
First responders were called to the scene, where a portion of the freeway had to be closed as crews worked to clean the area. The crash happened at about 4:30 a.m., and the roadway wasn’t fully open again until just after 10:00 a.m. At this time, no information has been released on the cause of this truck crash, which is likely still under investigation with local law enforcement officials.
