Overturned Jeep Wreaks Havoc on 210

An overturned Jeep near the Huntington Drive exit had the 210 at a crawl Wednesday morning.

The California Highway Patrol has not determined the cause of the accident that snarled traffic on the eastbound 210 Freeway on Wednesday morning.

Sgt. Mike Dulong of the Baldwin Park CHP office said field officers are still investigating the accident in which a Jeep overturned in the middle lanes of the freeway, trapping the injured driver inside.

Dulong added he does not know the status of the driver, who was taken to an undisclosed local hospital.

CHP reports show the accident occurred just before 8 a.m. near the Huntington Drive exit.

All eastbound lanes of the freeway — except the carpool lane — remained closed as CHP officers and firefighters rendered aid to the Jeep's driver and cleared the wreckage.

Please correct the title to read "wreaks havoc"-- as written, it implies that the Jeep in question destroyed the usual freeway craziness! "Wreak" is the present tense of an obsolete English verb meaning "to create, to make". We are also familiar with its past tense in the old phrase "what hath God wrought?".
