Accident on Golden Gate Bridge stalls traffic

Traffic this morning on the Golden Gate Bridge is heavy following a two-vehicle accident on the southbound side of the bridge, Sgt. D. Gomez of the Golden Gate Bridge said.

An accident between a black sport utility vehicle and a truck occurred at 6:54 a.m., Gomez said. Emergency crews had to close both sides of the bridge to transport one of the parties to the hospital, Gomez said.

All lanes were opened following the accident at 7:18 a.m., but traffic remained congested south of the bridge plaza toward 19th Avenue, Gomez said.
