SigAlert Canceled on San Mateo Bridge After Crash Cleared

FILE ART - San Mateo Bridge

All lanes have reopened on the San Mateo Bridge after a three-car injury crash clogged eastbound traffic this morning, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

The injury crash blocked two eastbound lanes on the San Mateo  Bridge Tuesday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Initial reports indicated that the crash involved at least two  vehicles and that one party may be trapped inside a car.

The CHP issued a Sig-alert for the bridge just east of the high  rise at 7:38 a.m.

At 7:46 a.m., the CHP was preparing to close all eastbound lanes  to allow a medical helicopter to land on the span.  At 9 a.m., all eastbound lanes reopened.
   
The driver of the Toyota suffered moderate to major injuries that  are not considered life-threatening, the officer said.

He was taken by ambulance to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley.  The helicopter that was originally called to transport the victim was canceled.

The crash backed up traffic to U.S. Highway 101.
