Vehicles blocking commute into S.F.

Two incidents have slowed traffic into San Francisco on Wednesday morning.

A vehicle with flat tire on the western span of the Bay Bridge near San Francisco has shut down one lane of traffic and forced significant backup all the way to Treasure Island, according California Highway Patrol officers.

CHP and Bay Bridge patrol vehicles are following the car as it attempts to use the Fifth Street exit off the bridge, but the convoy is moving slowly, CHP officials said. Delays are present as of 8:30 a.m.

Also in San Francisco, a vehicle is blocking part of the Highway 101 offramp near Octavia Boulevard. Command units are focused on ushering off the vehicle with the flat tire on the Bay Bridge, so the vehicle on Highway 101 hasn’t been dealt with yet, according to CHP officials.
