"We just have to pay attention when we are getting on to the freeway, so, and a lot of time people maybe are going to work late or what not. So, we just have to make sure to pay attention to the signs and the direction of travel that we are going," said Ofc. Lee Tirona at the scene. He said at this time alcohol and drugs do not appear to be a factor.
