Big-Rig Crashes Into Golden Gate Bridge Toll Plaza

A big-rig that crashed into the toll plaza at the Golden Gate Bridge this morning has been towed away, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

The crash was reported at 8:43 a.m. in the third southbound lane from the left at the toll plaza on the southern end of the bridge, CHP Officer Andrew Barclay said.

The toll plaza was damaged, and the front axle of the truck snapped in the accident, Barclay said. No injuries were reported.

Golden Gate Bridge spokeswoman Mary Currie said the big-rig driver had tried to use a lane that was too narrow for the truck.

She said tolling equipment was damaged but the damage is “not a big deal.”

The big-rig was disabled for a couple of hours and was blocking three southbound lanes at the toll plaza, Barclay said.
