The California Highway Patrol says a man being pulled over on a Los Angeles freeway suddenly made a U-turn into oncoming traffic, causing a head-on collision that killed him and another driver.
CHP officer Francisco Villalobos says the crash happened shortly after 1 a.m. Thursday on the southbound 110 Freeway near downtown.
Sheriff’s deputies tried to pull over the white compact car after noticing it weaving in lanes.
Officials say the car pulled to the right shoulder and then abruptly turned into oncoming traffic. It collided with a black pickup truck.
City News Service says the drivers of both vehicles died at the scene.
Five of the six southbound lanes were closed down by the accident for about four hours but were re-opened before dawn.
