Wednesday, January 28th, 2009 at 5 a.m. two vehicles on the eastbound lane on the I-10 (Santa Monica Freeway) just west of National Boulevard went into flames after a devastating collision. Two men were killed; one was driving on the wrong side of the freeway at more than 65 mph. One was a Culver City police officer and the other was a 21-year-old Van Nuys man. Not sure if the officer was on duty at the time of the accident or not.
The accident happened less than two blocks away from my house, I was sleeping at this time but had woken up because of the helicopters around the accident. Traffic was backed up till 1 p.m. for miles. My brother was on his way to school at 11 a.m. and said all the local roads were jam packed since the I-10 going eastbound was closed.
