SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The eastbound lanes of the Bay Bridge were shut down Thursday evening due to an accident, according to the California Highway Patrol. As of 7 p.m., the vehicle involved in the accident was removed, and the lanes are moving again.
CHP did not report any injuries. The closure was in effect just east of Treasure Island.
Earlier on Thursday, the westbound lanes were blocked for several hours as protesters in support of Palestine drove onto the bridge and shut down lanes, some throwing the keys of their vehicles into the bay.
Around 80 people were arrested in that incident.
