An early morning one-car accident on southbound 110 Freeway sent a female driver of a Toyota Tundra to Huntington Hospital with minor injuries Friday morning.
"Anytime it rains for the first time, roads get really slick," said South Pasadena Captain Danny DeAngelis.
South Pasadena rescue personnel (paramedics and fire fighters) arrived on the scene of the overturned vehicle around 7:45 a.m., and treated the woman who was already removed from her car.
The freeway was closed while California Highway Patrol and rescue units worked the scene—causing a massive backup to the dismay of commuters.
The accident was one of many reported on local thoroughfares due to Friday's heavy rains.
