Eastbound 10 Fwy to be Closed for 6 to 7 Hours After Fatal Crash
Two men were killed this morning in a collision that may have involved a wrong way driver on the eastbound 10 freeway.

The accident has snarled Westside traffic since all lanes on the eastbound 10 freeway between the 405 freeway and Overland Avenue are closed. Two lanes on the westbound side are also closed for the use of emergency vehicles.
The eastbound closure will last approximately six to seven hours while the two westbound lanes should remain closed for about another hour.
