Flights Delayed as Suspicious Vehicle Forces Parts of LAX to Close

Flights were delayed and parts of LAX Airport were forced to close on June 22, as police investigated a ‘suspicious vehicle’ that was left unattended.

Traffic into LAX was diverted to the lower arrivals area, while authorities, including LAPD’s Bomb Squad, investigated the truck, according to the airport.
