Was in Encino this afternoon and saw four news copters hovering over 405. Got back to my desk and read the longest Sigalert traffic collision report ever. There was a huge accident involving a gigantic, collapsed construction crane. Read about it here. A few people were injured but so far no deaths reported. Traffic’s been backed up for 10 miles on 405 North for the last three hours. They’ve shut down the highway and do not plan to re-open it until 5pm. Mooninites declared chief suspects.
