The incident occurred at approximately 1:45 a.m. The motorist was seen traveling southbound in the northbound lanes of the Long Beach (710) Freeway at Third Street in East Los Angeles. The motorist continued to travel southbound and entered the northbound lanes of the Santa Ana (5) Freeway when he collided into three other vehicles, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Alex Rubio.
One victim of the crash was transported to the hospital. The injuries of the victim and the wrong-way motorist were not immediately available. The wrong-way driver was later put in custody. An investigation is ongoing to determine if alcohol and/or drugs were factors in the incident.
