Suspicious van at Metro station shuts down 105 Freeway near LAX

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A suspicious white van at the Aviation Green Line Metro Station shut down the 105 Freeway near LAX Wednesday.

Authorities received a call about the suspicious vehicle at 8:10 a.m. When deputies went to check it out, they determined that the vehicle did appear to be suspicious.

An arson and explosive unit was called to the scene and cleared the van. A bomb squad robot was seen blowing out the back window of the van.

The 105 Freeway was closed in both directions from the 405 Freeway to LAX due to the investigation, with all traffic being diverted to the 405 Freeway.

Just before 10 a.m., the freeway was reopened.

It was unclear if anything was found in the van.
