Cindy Whitehead, a former pro skateboarder from Hermosa Beach, managed to surf the closed I-405 freeway during Carmageddon II without getting caught. She had the phone numbers of a bail bondsman, a lawyer and a friend written on her arms — just in case. Her husband, photographer Ian Logan, took pictures.
It was a lot of fun, it was fun for two minutes. And it’s something I can say I have done. Not too many people can say they have ridden the 405 Freeway on a skateboard.”
At least seven freeway interlopers were cited, including a newlywed couple who strolled down the Sunset Boulevard ramp about 3:30 a.m. Not cited: a tourist couple from Europe who said they were lost.
The freeway began opening about 8 p.m. Sunday and is due top be completely operational by about 11 p.m.
