2 Hurt in San Francisco Car Accident
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (February 4, 2019) – Two people sustained injuries following a multi-vehicle hit-and-run crash on January 31.
The incident shut down three westbound lanes on Bay Bridge west of Treasure Island for an hour. At around 2:30 p.m., CHP stated that the collision was caused traffic back up into San Francisco since the three left lanes at the center anchorage were blocked.
The CHP also confirmed that the collision was between three vehicles. Two of the cars escaped the scene, but one came back to the area, heading back in the wrong direction on the bridge. That driver was detained.
Meanwhile, one suspect vehicle is still being searched. The incident injured two people, including an infant.
At around 3:22 p.m., the area was finally cleared, and lanes have since reopened, just an hour after the incident.
Meanwhile, another multi-vehicle crash occurred in the area shortly after the initial accident. However, it was cleared within twenty minutes.
