A motorist was taken to a hospital Wednesday after failing to yield to police and crashing on the side of the Glenn Anderson (105) Freeway.

Los Angeles Port Police observed an “apparently disabled” white SUV on the westbound 105 Freeway near Central Avenue and attempted to approach the vehicle just after 9:45 a.m. Wednesday, according to Port of Los Angeles spokeswoman Chelsea Boyd.

“Following an initial approach, the vehicle was observed changing speeds and lanes erratically and running into the guard rail of the freeway,” Boyd said. “The driver failed to yield to the emergency lights and siren but ultimately ran into the guard rail and stopped.”

The driver did not respond to several police commands following the crash, leading officers to approach and safely detain the motorist at about 9:55 a.m.

The driver was assessed at the scene and taken to a hospital in unknown condition, Boyd said. Alcohol or drugs did not appear to be a factor in the crash, she said.

No other people were in the SUV at the time of the crash and no weapons were found.

The California Highway Patrol was investigating the incident.
