115 Traffic Accidents During Morning Commute

According to the California Highway Patrol, the roads were a mess on a rainy Thursday morning in Los Angeles.

There were 115 traffic accidents reported during the rainy morning commute Thursday on Los Angeles freeways, compared with 55 during the same period a week ago, when it did not rain, the California Highway Patrol reported.

The accidents were reported between 4 a.m. and 9 a.m. on both days, said CHP Officer Ed Jacobs.

In one of the accidents Thursday morning, a big rig jackknifed about 6:20 a.m. and caused the closure of the transition road from the eastbound Ventura(134) Freeway to the westbound Foothill (210) Freeway in Pasadena, the CHP reported. The closure was continuing past 10 a.m. as crews worked to clear the scene.

People in this town do not know how to drive in the rain!! We've all seen the craziness. And with most people not having insurance, it's like a sloppy game of bumper cars with major consequences. I hate to say it, but when it rains in LA, it's better to just stay home.
