Food Truck Opens While Stuck In Traffic Jam Behind Crash On Highway

August 25, 2018

A fiery crash led to both sides of the 105 Freeway in Los Angeles shut down for hours.  

Motorists on both sides had to sit and wait for the wreckage to be cleared before they could make their way on.  However, it could have been a lot worse.

Stuck amongst the thousands of motorists was a food truck, who decided to open for business while people waited for the fiery crash to be dealt with.  

A burning tanker truck on the westbound lanes has shut down traffic on the 105 and the Metro Green Line in Hawthorne. A food truck opened up and began to serve customers in the carpool lane. At least half a dozen people immediately formed a line. --: Chris Keller
