San Francisco's main thoroughfare was closed Friday morning because of a suspicious package.
Market Street was shut down around Fremont Street at about 8 a.m. while authorities investigated a suspicious package, according to authorities.
Police were called to the scene after a pedestrian spotted a duffel bag sitting near a bench near the intersection of Market and Battery streets.
Market Street was shut down between Davis and Sansome streets and between Mission and Pine strees, authorities said.
The bag was eventually run through an X-ray machine and determined safe to open. Police said they found clothing in the bag.
Witnesses took to Twitter quickly with images and updates. Eyewitnesses described seeing the bomb squad shut down the street. Others reported seeing authorities concentrated in an area near a Bank of America branch on Market Street.
A media representative from Bank of America said the branch was not impacted at all and the suspicious package was not in the bank.
