Bay Bridge Closed Indefinitely

San Francisco, CA — Authorities have indefinitely closed the Oakland-San Francisco Bay Bridge after a rod and a metal brace erected last month during an emergency repair job fell onto the bridge’s westbound lanes.

The California Highway Patrol says the rod apparently snapped at about 5:30pm Tuesday right in the midst of the evening commute. The mishap caused an unknown number of accidents, but no injuries have been reported.
