Hopefully you weren't one of many caught in traffic for half an hour or more when eastbound 240 came to a screeching halt mid-day July 23. Here's what happened:Traffic was slowed anyway because of construction, and then an accident occurred and completely shut the road down.

We had reports of people driving the wrong way up the Edison Street off ramp just to get off the freeway.

So much trouble caused by a single driver or two!
