Wrong way driver causes major Bay Bridge accident

SAN FRANCISCO -- All lanes have reopened in the eastbound direction of the Bay Bridge after a multi-vehicle collision closed them for a period Saturday evening, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Officers responded to a report of multi-vehicle collision at 8:27 p.m., Ogilvie said. At least seven people were reported injured, three of them critically, according to the San Francisco fire dispatch.

The CHP says a person driving the wrong way on the bridge without headlights on lead to the accident.

Ogilvie said he could not yet confirm the number of vehicles involved in the crash or the number of people reported injured.
