Bay City News—All lanes have been reopened on the lower deck of the Bay Bridge after a high-speed crash and shooting early this morning prompted the closure of most of the eastbound lanes, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The crash occurred around 2 a.m. at the S-curve, east of Treasure Island. A shooting followed the crash, but authorities are not yet releasing details about the incident, CHP Officer Michael Ferguson said.
All eastbound lanes on the bridge were briefly blocked after the crash. The roadway was reopened but then lanes were blocked again at about 4:30 a.m. for the investigation. Three lanes were cleared shortly after 8:30 a.m., and all lanes were back open by 10 a.m., CHP Officer James Evans said.
Two people inside the car that crashed were taken to a hospital to be treated for injuries suffered in the crash, Ferguson said.
San Francisco police homicide inspectors are assisting the CHP in the investigation into the shooting, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.
