Carbon Canyon Road Closed Again Tonight

UPDATE, courtesy of "Canyon Lover":  As reported by the Orange County Register, the wreck involved three vehicles and was precipitated by a DUI driver, who was taken to UCI Medical Center.  Hopefully, the innocent people in the other vehicles were not seriously injured.

For the second time in less than a week, Carbon Canyon Road was closed because of a traffic accident.  YHB just returned home after having to wait out tonight's incident at my father-in-law's place in Olinda. 

Nothing was learned, other than that the incident happened around 7 p.m. and the closure was slated to last until 8:15.  It was over a half-hour later before the cleanup was completed and the highway reopened.

Without knowing details, it is impossible to comment any further, but maybe some details will be forthcoming (or someone might leave a comment here.)

The Orange County Register news desk says it was a three-vehicle accident involving a DUI driver who was transported to UCI.
