Big-rig crash snarls traffic on Hwy 280 in SF

Multiple lanes were blocked on Interstate Highway 280 in San Francisco on Thursday evening due to a collision involving a big-rig, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The crash was reported just after 5:30 p.m. on southbound Highway 280 just north of Alemany Boulevard, the CHP said.

As of 6 p.m., at least three southbound lanes and two northbound lanes were closed.

A photo posted to Twitter appears to show that a garbage truck was involved in the crash and went over the center divide of Highway 280.
