1 killed in crash on SB 110 Fwy in Gardena

GARDENA, Calif. (KABC) -- Fog and scattered showers contributed to several traffic accidents and freeway closures across Southern California on Tuesday morning.

Multiple lanes of the southbound 110 Freeway were closed in Gardena following a fatal collision, California Highway Patrol officials said.

The crash was reported at El Segundo Boulevard at about 4:15 a.m., CHP Officer Francisco Villalobos said.

Traffic was backed up to Florence Avenue as CHP allowed all drivers to use the express lanes. All lanes on the southbound 110 Freeway were reopened shortly before 7 a.m.

Freeway flooding also temporarily shut down the eastbound and westbound connectors from the northbound 405 Freeway to the 105 Freeway on the border between Hawthorne and Lennox, CHP said. The connector roads were reopened at about 6:30 a.m.
