Traffic Stalled after San Francisco Auto Accident on Interstate 80
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (October 13, 2020) – Monday afternoon, four westbound lanes of the Bay Bridge were shut down after a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 80.
According to CHP, at around 2:00 p.m., a speeding black sedan collided with four or more vehicles.
Furthermore, the collision happened west of Treasure Island Road in San Fransico. Then, it blocked the right and center lanes
Authorities confirmed that four vehicles played a role in the crash. Moreover, four westbound lanes were closed, according to the responding San Fransico Fire Department.
After clearing the scene and reopening the lanes, a significant amount of back-up cars is still noticeable in the area.
Traffic started to pick-up at around 3:00 p.m., and motorists are advised to take alternate routes to avoid the traffic in the area.
Due to the high chance of injury or death in an accident, extreme caution should be taken whenever you drive. Also, drive cautiously and always expect the unexpected.
What’s Next after Multi-Vehicle Crash
As common of an occurrence as they are, many people do not suspect what follows in the event of a multi-vehicle crash.
When driving, scan the road 1/2 mile to a full mile ahead to check whether there’s a possible hazard. Our bodies weren’t designed to travel at 50mph. Also, we were designed for speeds of less than 10mph. Thus, you need to learn to consciously break that instinct and focus farther ahead
