Two men were killed this morning in a collision that may have involved a wrong way driver on the eastbound 10 freeway. "At 5 a.m. we have reports of a wrong way driver, but we don't have confirmation if this is the vehicle involved or if [the wrong way driver] caused the accident [and left the scene]," Officer Jennifer Connolly told LAist.

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.
