Witnesses put the 21-year-old male's Toyota Camry entering the eastbound lanes from the Fairfax off ramp, according to CHP Officer Travis Ruiz in a phone conversation with LAist.

All eastbound lanes of the 10 freeway were shut down early this morning before rush hour and finally reopened at 12:38 p.m.
