UPDATE 10 A.M.:

All eastbound lanes of the Bay Bridge have reopened following an early morning collision and police shooting, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The lanes closed around 3:25 a.m. after the collision about a mile west of the toll plaza, according to CHP spokesperson Officer Vu Williams.

About 15-20 minutes later, an officer spotted a red Cadillac coming down the right shoulder. Multiple commands were given to stop, but the driver failed to yield, Williams said. The officer felt threatened and fired on the driver, according to Williams.

The driver was struck by the bullets, Williams said. Paramedics attended to the driver, who was taken to the hospital. Williams said the red Cadillac was not involved in the collision.

The condition of the driver was not immediately available.

UPDATE 5 A.M.:

All eastbound lanes of the Bay Bridge were blocked early Sunday morning due to police activity, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Officers responded at about 4 a.m. to the eastbound lanes of the Bay Bridge just west of the toll plaza where a collision blocked several lanes, a source with knowledge of the investigation told the San Francisco Examiner.

Shortly after, an incident occurred in the same area with people not involved in the crash that led to a shooting involving police, the source said.

A CHP spokesperson did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Motorists were advised to use alternate routes.
