Video: Part of Los Angeles Highway Collapses into Ocean

| by Michael Allen

Due to heavy rains on Sunday in the Los Angeles area, a portion of Paseo Del Mar, a coastal highway, collapsed and fell into the ocean (video below). Fortunately, the road had been closed down for nearly a year as the cliff face, which supported the road, had slowly been eroding away.

All over Los Angeles on Sunday, the number of vehicle accidents went soaring as rain 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.
