Oversize load jams Bay Bridge

Rush-hour traffic began early Tuesday afternoon when a truck carrying an oversize load wedged itself in the metal beams across the Bay Bridge, plugging up all eastbound traffic on Interstate 80.

At 3:06 p.m., the eastbound truck got stuck in the bridge, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Chris Nave, backing up traffic through The City, on U.S. Highway 101 and Interstate 280 as drivers on the way to the East Bay came to a halt.

“It was an extended load, so it was just too big to make it across the bridge,” Nave said.

Traffic was cleared between the bridge and Seventh Street to allow the truck and trailer to back away from the bridge. By 3:54 p.m., all lanes were open again.

No injuries were reported in the crash, and no other vehicles were involved.
