  • A driver was trapped in his car after colliding with two semi trucks early this morning on the northbound 5 Freeway at Lorena Street in Boyle Heights. The man was freed from the wreckage by firefighters and transported to a hospital in unknown condition, said the L.A. Fire Department. The crash prompted the closure of the northbound 5 for about an hour and triggered a SigAlert, said CBS2.
  • Crews are working to repair an underground, six-inch water main that burst early this morning in the 200 block of N. Robinson Street in Historic Filipinotown. Water was shut off to some homes as they repair the pipe and a large hole left in the street. CBS2
  • A staff reunion, multimedia exhibit and documentary are parts of the 50th anniversary celebration of the founding of “Con Safos Magazine” in Lincoln Heights. The short-lived but ground breaking magazine was active during the height of the Chicano Movement and featured the work of Chicano writers, poets and other artists who chronicled and commented on the Mexican-American experience in Los Angeles. “I wanted to capture the beauty of the barrio,” said former art editor Sergio Hernandez.
