    An RV crashed into the toll booth area of the Golden Gate Bridge late Tuesday, prompting the closure of multiple lanes of traffic into the Wednesday morning hours, according to officials.

    The crash occurred around 9 p.m., and California Highway Patrol officials issued a travel advisory because some toll booth lanes were closed.

    As of 6:30 a.m. Wednesday, lanes three and five remain closed, officials said. Lane three is typically closed at that time. Lane five is the lane impacted by the crash.

    It is unclear what prompted the crash, and an investigation is ongoing, according to officials. The driver did suffer a leg injury.

    CHP officials warn that the incident could prompt delays during the Wednesday morning commute.

    A similar RV crash occurred at the Golden Gate Bridge at the beginning of August. The door of an RV was ripped off when the vehicle became stuck in a toll booth, but no one was seriously injured.

    Plans are in place to eventually redesign and replace the toll plaza.
