A power outage caused by a vehicle accident has caused traffic problems outside Los Angeles International Airport, but the airport itself continues to operate.

Airport spokeswoman Mary Grady tells KNX radio that Tuesday morning flights are not affected and there have been no delays or cancellations.

City News Service says the California Highway Patrol reports that westbound I-105 has been closed at Sepulveda Boulevard because of power lines in the lanes.

Grady says the Department of Water and Power is working on the problem.
