Epic Pothole Wrecks At Least 21 Cars On The 5 Freeway
So much for road repair: a pot hole that was supposedly patched up after a big rig crash on Monday night created a nightmare for drivers on a connector between the 5 and 10 freeways.
The pothole was first discovered early this morning as traffic helicopters witnessed several cars haplessly running over the hole. A CHP official told LAist that at least 21 cars ran over the pothole, but numbers from various news sites range from 22 to 40 cars damaged in some way by the huge, stupid pot hole.
ABC 7 is reporting that the hole was initially caused by a big rig crash on Monday night. The hole had been patched after the accident, but it looks like the repair job just wasn't good enough.
CHP officials closed the portion of the freeway and are expected reopen it at 1 p.m. this afternoon.
