NORWALK, Calif. - An illegal street takeover brought traffic to a complete stop on the 5 Freeway in Norwalk Thursday night.
Radio Rob Newton from KFI AM 640 radio shot the video and posted it to Twitter. He said he was on his way to work when the shutdown happened on the northbound lanes of the freeway near the Rosecrans exit around 10 p.m.
The video of the chaotic scene captured fireworks going off, at least one car doing donuts, and a large crowd walking in the roadway without social distancing.
In addition, no members of the crowd were seen wearing facial coverings.
There were no reports of any arrests or citations.
This comes before Memorial Day weekend. California Highway Patrol stated they will be stepping up patrols over the holiday weekend.
