Bay Bridge traffic slow after crash

One lane of westbound Interstate 80 in San Francisco that was blocked Thursday morning due to a two-vehicle crash has reopened, although traffic remains heavy, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The vehicles crashed just before 5:30 a.m. on I-80 east of Fremont Street and snarled traffic on the Bay Bridge, the CHP reported. The No. 5 lane was closed while California Department of Transportation crews repaired a rail damaged by the crash, according to the CHP. At least one person sustained minor injuries, according to the CHP.

A Sig-alert issued at 5:38 a.m. was canceled at 7:35 a.m., CHP Officer A. Paulson said.
