Overturned Jeep Wrecks Havoc on 210

The jeep had the 210 at a crawl Wednesday morning.

12 p.m.

The California Highway Patrol has not determined the cause of the accident that snarled traffic on the eastbound 210 Freeway on Wednesday morning.

Sgt. Mike Dulong of the Baldwin Park CHP office said field officers are still investigating the accident in which a Jeep overturned in the middle lanes of the freeway, trapping the injured driver inside.

Dulong added he does not know the status of the driver, who was taken to an undisclosed local hospital.

CHP reports show the accident occurred just before 8 a.m. on at the Huntington Drive exit.

All eastbound lanes of the freeway — except the carpool lane — remained closed as CHP officers and firefighters rendered aid to the Jeep's driver and cleared the wreckage.

Do accidents like this influence you to drive safer?

I keep off of the freeways where possible - too many lunatics riding your tail or jumping in front of you and suddenly creating a too-small distance between you and the car in front (Them!). Then there is the driver who comes up at 90 miles an hour and gets 2 feet from your rear fender before diving to the side in front of another unsuspecting motorist. I really can't believe some of the things I see on the roads these days. Drive safer, you say - That makes no difference with crass idiots about - in fact you are more at risk it seems to me! They have no respect for the rule-abiding driver.
