It was a night of roadway chaos as the rainy weather took a toll on motorists around Los Angeles County, the California Highway Patrol said Monday, and the lessening downpour during the early morning rush hour could still add to the toll.

About 200 collisions were reported on L.A. County freeways between 9 p.m. Sunday and 1 a.m. Monday compared with 30 during the same period one week ago when it was dry, according to the CHP.

That included a jack-knifed big rig with two trailers that shut down traffic on the eastbound San Bernardino (10) Freeway at Garey in Pomona.
