All eastbound lanes of the Bay Bridge are open again after a crash with multiple cars and injuries.
Authorities say that all Eastbound lanes of the Bay Bridge have been cleared after a major accident involving multiple vehicles that sent several people to the hospital Thursday afternoon.
Around 1:08 p.m., the San Francisco Fire Department (SFFD) tweeted about the accident, saying that multiple people were hurt and that drivers should stay away from the eastbound side of the Bay Bridge.
Six people were hurt at first, but at 1:34 p.m., the SFFD tweeted that 18 people were hurt and that four ambulances had been called to take as many people as possible to nearby hospitals.
SFFD says that none of the injuries were very serious.
At 1:54 p.m., SFFD posted on Twitter that the accident was under control. Eight adults and eight children were among the 16 people who were treated at the scene. There were only two people who needed to be taken to the hospital.
By about 2:00 p.m., all lanes going east in the Yerba Buena Island tunnel had been cleared, according to the authorities. The whole thing took less than an hour. Travelers were warned to expect a few more delays.
