All northbound lanes of Golden Gate Bridge closed after pedestrian killed

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) - All northbound lanes of the Golden Gate Bridge are closed on Monday night after a car hit and killed a pedestrian, according to the California Highway Patrol.

There is no estimated time of the road reopening.

Traffic is a mess in both directions.

The CHP says the closure is expected to last for a long time.

Here is the full statement from the CHP:

All northbound lanes of the Golden Gate Bridge are closed for a vehicle versus pedestrian collision that has resulted in the death of the pedestrian. At this time it appears that the pedestrian entered the traffic lanes intent on self harm.

There is no ETO for northbound lanes at this time. Southbound lanes were closed briefly to allow emergency vehicles to access the scene wrong way from the San Francisco side. The Coroner's office has been called to the scene to conduct their investigation. We will provide updates as they become available.

At this time, drivers wishing to access Marin County will need to utilize the Bay Bridge to I-80 eastbound, transition to I-580 w/b and cross the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge into Marin.
