An SUV caught fire after it crashed into a guardrail on the northbound 710 Freeway in Long Beach Tuesday night.
A big rig jacknifed on the transition road from the northbound 710 Freeway to the eastbound 60 Freeway this morning.
Firefighters had to use the Jaws of Life to rescue one driver from his rig before he was taken to a trauma hospital.
The CHP expects the transitions to be closed until at least 1:20 p.m.
Southbound lanes will shut down overnight in the East Los Angeles, Commerce and Vernon areas, according to Caltrans.
The crash happened around 11 a.m. and sent five ambulances rushing to the scene near Willow Street.
The person was reported on a guardrail around 6:30 a.m., prompting authorities to shut down two transition roads, according to the CHP.
The CHP warned that the transition road from the northbound 710 Freeway to the southbound 405 Freeway could be closed for hours.
The 710 Freeway expansion has many consequences—and most of them aren’t even directly connected to the build-out.
A multi-car crash briefly shut down all lanes of the northbound 710 Freeway near Del Amo Boulevard in Long Beach early Wednesday morning.
