Good morning, I'm David Greene. Freeway traffic - it's part of life here in LA, but Isabel Larios has a secret weapon - her food truck. The LA Times reports she was driving it the other morning and got stuck after an accident. She figured, why not get out, open the thing up and make fresh coffee for herself?
