Driver Charged With DUI Following 4-Vehicle Crash on 405

No one is transported in multi-vehicle wreck after a SigAlert is issued for about 30 minutes on the 405 Freeway northbound late Friday night, according to California Highway Patrol.

Three lanes were down for roughly 30 minutes late Friday night after a four-vehicle accident on the 405 Freeway northbound just south of Skirball Center Drive, according to California Highway Patrol. No one was injured.

CHP Officer Ed Jacobs said at 10:57 p.m. they received a report of a Toyota Camry driving erratically at high speeds and crashed. Upon arrival, Jacobs said a Los Angeles Police Department unit was on scene of a four-vehicle crash, with two vehicles on the shoulder near the HOV lane and two vehicles in the first high speed lane. A helicopter was also dispatched.

Jacobs said the driver of the Toyota Camry was charged by LAPD with driving while under the influence. A SigAlert was issued for about 30 minutes until the lanes were cleared, he added.

There were no transports to the hospital, and this was also confirmed by Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey.

This closure was close to an hour, not 30 minutes! N o injuries and they had to shut down three of 4 lanes of a major, busy freeway around 11 on a Friday night??!! When are we going to learn from other advanced countries like Japan and Germany and place more value on time and other drivers' rights? Problem is lack of respect for citizens by officials who do not have to answer anyone on their performance in regards to time.
