WEST LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A fiery five-car pileup in West Los Angeles was causing delays on the Santa Monica (10) Freeway.

The accident took place on the westbound 10 freeway at the Bundy Drive interchange near the Santa Monica city limits at 12:49 p.m. Saturday.

According to authorities, several motorists had reported a small, white BMW being driven dangerously in the minutes preceding the accident.
