A sofa left on the freeway caused a crash that left one person dead Sunday evening, according to wire reports. A Toyota Corolla traveling in the fast lane around 9:30 p.m. hit a couch. That car was then hit by a GMC Safari, which overturned and ejected a passenger who was later pronounced dead at the scene. The incident is still under investigation. The CHP says roadway hazards should be called in to 911.
