Overturned Big-Rig Sparks Traffic Jam on Bay Bridge

All westbound lanes of the Bay Bridge were blocked late Thursday due to an overturned big-rig, according to the CHP.

The incident was first reported at 8:24 p.m. on Interstate 80, just west of Treasure Island. The big-rig landed on its side and no other vehicles were involved, according to the CHP. Fire officials said heavy winds may have caused the big-rig to tip over.
