    I think they mean the southbound lanes of the 2 or the westbound lanes of the 210; the 2 is north-south and the 210 is east-west.

    The man who allegedly pushed the body of a dead woman out of his car off the westbound 210 Freeway in La Crescenta today is in the hospital after apparently suffering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to police.

    Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies have taken over the investigation of apparent homicide, which motorists reported shortly before 5:45 p.m. today, although Glendale police were the first to respond.

    The man, who was driving a black Honda, allegedly dumped the body at the La Crescenta Avenue offramp from the westbound 210 Freeway, but was stopped by Glendale police on the southbound Glendale (2) Freeway near the Mountain Avenue offramp.

    He was transported to the hospital after police discovered he was suffering from a gunshot wound, according to police sources.

    Sheriff’s Sgt. Erick Kim confirmed that a shooting occurred, but that the investigation into how it happened would likely last well into the night.

    Investigators were interviewing motorists who pulled over after witnessing the shooting, and traffic remained backed up on the 210 Freeway with the right lane closed for the crime scene.
