Southern California rain causes havoc during morning commute

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Southern California traffic is already painful, but add in a quarter-inch of rain and it becomes unbearable.

A light and steady rain created slippery conditions Thursday morning, leading to several crashes on freeways across the Southland.

A crash involving a semi-truck tied up traffic on the 60 Freeway heading eastbound near Lorena Street in Boyle Heights. That crash closed five lanes of traffic as crews worked to clean up the scene.
