Rain Causes Accident, Commuter Nightmare

A morning rush hour accident sent a woman to the hospital and snarled traffic for miles on Arroyo Seco Parkway.

An early morning one-car accident on southbound 110 Freeway sent a female driver of a Toyota Tundra to Huntington Hospital with minor injuries Friday morning, according to police.

"Anytime it rains for the first time, roads get really slick," said South Pasadena Captain Danny DeAngelis.

Rescue personnel (paramedics and fire fighters) arrived on the scene of the overturned vehicle around 7:45 a.m. and treated the woman, who had already been removed from her car. 

The freeway was closed while California Highway Patrol and rescue units worked the scene—causing a massive backup to the dismay of commuters.

The accident was one of many reported on local thoroughfares.

The National Weather service has until 3:00 p.m., and thunderstorms are expected to bring heavy rain.

Ponding of intersections and low-lying areas is possible, and drivers are advised to be wary of slick conditions.
