Accident slows I-280 traffic in S.F.

Traffic is slowing considerably for drivers traveling north on Interstate 280 in San Francisco due to a two-car accident that has shut down two lanes, according to officials from the California Highway Patrol.

The accident occurred at 7:53 a.m., when a black Cadillac collided with a Nissan on I-280 just north of John Daly Boulevard, according to CHP reports.

One of the drivers involved in the accident complained of some pain, but the injuries did not appear to be serious, CHP officials said.

Both left lanes were shut down so emergency vehicles could attend to the drivers. Traffic was backed up to Mission Street in Daly City as a result of the accident. The two lanes should re-open in 20 to 30 minutes, CHP said.
