Morning headlines today have not been an exemplary one for public safety, both accident and crime-wise. The big ticket item was the eastbound 10 Freeway being closed in Covina after a 4:45 a.m. accident between a van and motorcycle that left the two-wheeler dead. All lanes were closed and one was reported open at 7 a.m. Also in Norwalk, a five-car crash caused three soundbound lanes on the 605 to be closed shortly before 8 a.m. There were several injuries, but none warranting transport to the hospital.

Moving a little further towards Los Angeles, in the unincorporated part of East Los Angeles, Los Angeles Sheriff's Deputies report that two peopled were gunned down within two miles and 90 minutes of each other last night (this sounds like a few weeks ago).
