Los Angeles highway collapses into ocean
Talk about crumbling infrastructure.
During heavy rains on Sunday, a portion of Paseo Del Mar, a coastal highway near Los Angeles, collapsed and fell into the ocean.
Thankfully, the road had been closed down for nearly a year as civil engineers monitored the cliff face that supported it, which had been slowly eroding away.
All over Los Angeles on Sunday, the number of vehicle accidents went soaring as torrential downpours begin mid-morning and did not stop for most of the day. Authorities attributed most of the wrecks to drivers going too fast on slick, wet pavement.
