One vehicle was "fully involved in fire" and a law enforcement officer may have been among the injured after a traffic collision Wednesday afternoon on the 405 Freeway, authorities said. The incident occurred about 1:45 p.m. and three lanes -- the carpool and No. 1 and No. 2 lanes -- on the northbound side of the freeway at Ventura Boulevard were blocked, according to the California Highway Patrol. Erik Scott of the Los Angeles Fire Department said there was "an officer that was reported injured," but that it remained unclear if the information was accurate.  In an alert, the LAFD said that at least two patients were being evaluated, including one who could have been an officer.

Since college football's coaching carousel is in full swing, and it's great sport to predict where the dominoes might fall, here's a compelling scenario for USC fans to consider: Fresno State's Tim DeRuyter, one of the hottest names in coaching after leading the Bulldogs to a 10-1 record, is hired by a larger program after Saturday's Mountain West Conference championship game against Utah State. Fresno State quickly hires alum Lane Kiffin, who was fired by USC in September. (Or Fresno State hires Jeff Tedford, who makes Kiffin, a former protégé, the offensive coordinator)

Burbank's Bob Hope Airport has begun offering PreCheck, the airport screening program that lets pre-approved travelers get through security faster. The Transportation Security Administration program is now in place at 103 airports across the U.S.; there are more than 450 commercial airports. In the Los Angeles area, LAX , Ontario , Long Beach , John Wayne/Orange County already have the program. That means travelers at those airports, if they are members of PreCheck, do not have to remove shoes, belts or jackets and can keep their liquids (still no more than 3 ounces)

Orange County transportation officials are recommending the addition of at least one free lane to the 405 Freeway, but are leaving enough wiggle room for a possible second lane. A committee for the Orange County Transportation Authority voted 6-2, with directors Gary Miller and Matthew Harper dissenting, to suggest adding one general-purpose lane in each direction of a 14-mile stretch between Seal Beach and Costa Mesa. The recommendation for "Alternative 1" was slightly modified to suggest building the single lane in a way that would allow another lane to be built in the future, said agency spokesman Joel Zlotnik.

At first glance, sure, it seems USC is outrageously placing its wobbly football program in the hands of a guy who was part of the regime which sent it staggering. How could the Trojans hire Steve Sarkisian when he is so closely tied to a coach they just fired two months ago, his former coaching buddy, Lane Kiffin? How could they hire Sarkisian just four seasons after USC was punished by the NCAA for infractions that occurred while he worked as a top assistant to coach Pete Carroll?

If you're getting ready to take a flight during the holidays, be prepared for more than the usual confusion at airport screenings. The combination of infrequent fliers and the Transportation Security Administration's new initiative that allows randomly selected passengers to receive expedited screening - an initiative that will continue during the holidays - has the potential to create passenger pileup. The TSA has moved from a one-size-fits-all security approach by allowing some passengers (75 and older)
