Man killed on Bay Bridge was from South S.F.

South San Francisco resident Anthony Sanchez Jr. has been identified as the 41-year-old driver who died after being trapped in his Isuzu box van for nearly an hour after a crash on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge Tuesday, according to the San Francisco Medical Examiner's Office.

Sanchez was driving at an unknown speed on the bridge when his vehicle rear-ended a 2-axle freightliner truck at approximately 1:15 p.m., a CHP official said.

The big-rig had stopped in the No. 5 lane of the bridge, possibly because it ran out of fuel, CHP officials said. The 23-year-old Union City driver of the big-rig was not injured.

The crash reportedly caused major traffic throughout the Bay Area.
