Another lane opens on 405 Freeway; traffic jam continues
One more lane has been opened on the northbound 405 Freeway at the 101 Freeway, but the majority of the freeway is expected to stay closed until sometime after 10 p.m., California Highway Patrol Officer Christian Craycraft said.
The accident, involving a jack-knifed truck, is being investigated as a possible hit-and-run, he said. At least one person was injured in the collision, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
All lanes but the northbound carpool lane had been closed since shortly after the 5:30 p.m. collision, which also caused a diesel fuel spill.
