SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Traffic was snarled on the eastbound San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge following an early morning high-speed chase that ended in a crash and gunfire.
The California Highway Patrol said officers were chasing a vehicle on the bridge around 1:30 a.m. Thursday when the driver crashed.
An officer apparently opened fire at the suspect following the crash, but did not hit him, according to the CHP. The suspect was taken to the hospital for minor injuries.
All lanes headed to Oakland were closed for about 15 minutes. Three lanes were opened for several hours after that, but were closed again briefly around 4:30 a.m. and CHP has been sporadically opening and closing lanes since then.
Sporadic lane closures on the Bay Bridge could last until 10:30 a.m. Thursday as officers investigate a shooting incident there, according to the California Highway Patrol.
San Francisco Police took over the investigation, according to CHP. The bridge may not fully reopen until 10:30 a.m.
