Overturned car on 110 freeway causes massive traffic Downtown LA

A car that overturned after striking the center divider on the Harbor (110) Freeway was causing massive traffic delays Wednesday morning through downtown, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The crash site was cleared at about 9:15 a.m. with reports of only minor injuries, according to the California Highway Patrol.

According to The Times the Chrysler Sebring crashed near the Ninth street exit and caused the closure of two northbound lanes while emergency crews worked to clear the area.

The accident also caused back-ups on the Santa Monica (10) freeway and traffic on the 110 remains heavy due to multiple other morning accidents.

The highway patrol reported 66 accidents in the Los Angeles area between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. Wednesday, nearly double the amount that was reported last week in the same time period. A highway patrol information officer said that they attribute this dramatic increase to Wednesday's rain.
