Lanes Blocked after Los Angeles Crash
LOS ANGELES, CA (November 21, 2018) – A big rig accident was reported on northbound 91 Freeway near Ramona Boulevard on Monday, November 19.
California Highway Patrol received a call around 4:30 a.m. about a trailer-truck that overturned on the freeway. When officers arrived at the scene, they found the big rig on its side blocking two traffic lanes.
According to the CHP incident log, the blue truck with a white trailer was seen swerving in and out of lanes possibly caused by a drowsy driver.
Authorities issued a SigAlert and called for tow services to assist in clearing the scene. A Hazmat also responded to the area for the spilled diesel on the dirt embankment.
Officials are still conducting an investigation. No additional information was released.
