Body Found On Interstate 10 Near Crenshaw Boulevard

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A man was found dead in a lane on the westbound 10 Freeway early Monday morning, according to the CHP and county coroner’s office.

A driver discovered the body in the second lane from the right near the Crenshaw Boulevard off-ramp at about 3:45 a.m., according to Officer Anthony Martin of the CHP Traffic Management Center.

The right two lanes, as well as the off-ramp, were shut down. The closure was causing traffic delays during rush hour.

The death was being investigated.
