Reporting from the area for the CBS 2 News at 11 p.m., Rachel Kim said there was no estimated time for service to be restored.

She spoke to drivers who said motoring through the area was dangerous.

“These traffic lights are off and because they are off, it’s real challenging to see some of the vehicles, especially if there are no headlights because it got dark really quick. And it got the best of me,” said Patrick Gregory of Atwater Village.

Edgar Hurtado got off the freeway and pulled over. He was driving with his son and didn’t feel it was safe to go home.

“This dark is like crazy,” he said, “a lot of people going back and forth and it’s hard to see the people walking.”
