A vehicle crashed into a bridge support pillar on the westbound 10 near the Arlington Ave. exit around 8:15 this morning, killing five four. Eyewitness calls to 911 reported that a red Lexus sedan crashed into the pillar and overturned, bursting into flames and trapping the vehicle's occupants. All westbound traffic was being diverted at Arlington. As of 9:15 a.m. the three left lanes were reopened. An investigation is ongoing. *Updated; reports of a 5th victim were determined to be incorrect.
