I was on the 110 Fwy right when this happened and it was infuriating! ONE friggin cop on a motorcycle falls over and they shut down the entire fwy, had over 8-9 squad cars, and at lesat 11-12 other cop motorcycles on scene. I drove through Long Beach on Tue and saw an overturned big rig and that only warranted 2 cop cars and a wrecker...what a waste of tax payers' dollars and an inrresponsible allocation of resources.
