Freeway crashes gnarl Monday morning commutes

A pair of car crashes on Los Angeles-area freeways ground morning commutes to a crawl Monday.

About 5:30 a.m., witnesses reported an overturned Toyota Camry on the northbound 5 Freeway near Colorado Street in Glendale.

The two right lanes were blocked while firefighters responded, however the scene was expected to be cleared by 7 a.m., a California Highway Patrol official said.

Meanwhile, in the South Pasadena area, authorities were working to clear a multiple-car crash on the southbound 110 Freeway south of Orange Grove Boulevard. Witnesses reported up to three cars involved in that accident, with one overturned.

The crash was blocking two lanes as of 6:45 a.m. but no Sig-alert was required, according to the CHP.
