San Francisco, California – One person died and another got wounded as a result for shooting and crash on the Bay Bridge.
The police did investigations on the bridge. For that purpose, they closed all eastbound lanes on the bridge for an hour.
Some of the lanes were reopened around 6.30 a.m., and remaining lanes around 7.45. The incident caused the traffic to get backed up for miles in San Francisco. Traffic here is bad enough as is. Of course, we don’t want anything more to cause the traffic to get worse.

The vehicle that opened a fire could get away. We have no information at this time about the driver of the vehicle or the shooter. We don’t even know if those were different people!
