A car crash, followed by a street takeover, Friday night were just the latest shenanigans to temporarily close the new 6th Street Viaduct, Los Angeles police said.
The crash occurred about 9:55 p.m., forcing officers to block access to the bridge, LAPD Officer Matthew Cruz said.
The $588-million bridge, connecting downtown to the city’s historic Eastside, opened to traffic two weeks ago and has been plagued by taggers, street racers and vehicle crashes.
After a two-hour closure Friday, an estimated 200 people descended on the bridge for a “street takeover, fireworks and vandalism,” the LAPD’s Central Division reported in a tweet.
