Separate collisions clog Coast Highway

Police and firefighters were called to two traffic collisions that

occurred within minutes of each other on South Coast Highway


Officers were first called to a rear-end collision involving two


cars on South Coast Highway and Legion Street at about 9:10 a.m. The

No. 1 southbound lane was shut down and traffic was congested through

Downtown. The driver of the vehicle that had been hit complained of

neck pain and was treated by firefighters before she was transported


to the hospital.

However, just one stoplight away, a non-injury collision occurred

at Cleo Street that shut down the No. 2 southbound lane. Three cars

were involved. The cause had not yet been determined at press time.
