Preliminary reports indicate that six vehicles were involved in the accident, which happened on the upper deck of the bridge near Treasure Island, CHP Officer Marc Johnston said.

The crash temporarily blocked the No. 4 and 5 westbound lanes. A Sig-alert issued at 1:43 p.m. was canceled at 3:10 p.m.
