Injury accident closes eastbound 118 Freeway in Granada Hills

April 7, 2011 |  7:23 am

A collision between a truck and a car closed the eastbound 118 Freeway on Thursday morning in Granada Hills and left one person seriously injured.

The crash occurred shortly after 5 a.m. west of Woodley Avenue. Arriving officers shut down all eastbound lanes until 5:43 a.m., said California Highway Patrol Officer Francisco Villalobos.

At that time, the carpool lane was opened for through traffic. Over the next 1 1/2 hours, officers gradually allowed traffic in the remaining lanes.

Predictably, traffic was worse than usual.

The cause of the accident remained under investigation.
