The real Carmageddon?

The 10 and 201 freeways are experiencing major delays on Thursday morning, after a tanker truck fire Wednesday shut down an eight-mile stretch of the 60 Freeway. The 60 should remain closed between the 710 and the 605 freeways through the weekend, the LA Times is reporting.

The bumper to bumper traffic promted LA Eastside to tweet out "The Eastside is experiencing the REAL carmageddon."

"The reality is that the delays could be long and so people will have to find alternate routes to work," Caltrans spokesman Patrick Chandler told the Pasadena Star-News. "Obviously shutting down the 60 Freeway – which is a major artery in the community of Los Angeles – is going to most likely impact other freeways, highways and streets in Los Angeles County."

The LA County Sheriff's office even sent out an e-mail asking "Frustrated by the 60 freeway Carmageddon? Metrolink http://www.metrolinktrains.com/ and Metro http://www.metro.net/ trains are running on time."

More from the Star-News:

CHP spokesman Saul Gomez said the tanker truck was occupied by two men, both of whom bailed out while it was still moving when they discovered it was on fire.

Neither man was injured, but a firefighter broke his leg. Montebello Fire Chief Tim Wessel said the firefighter was treated at a hospital and released.
