Two lanes were briefly shut down this morning on the northbound approach to the Golden Gate Bridge after a truck crashed, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

The accident was reported just before 8 a.m. south of the toll plaza on U.S. Highway 101 in San Francisco, according to the CHP.

The driver was trapped in the truck after it struck debris in the roadway. The two far right lanes of the highway were closed at 8:14 a.m., according to CHP Officer Ron Simmons.

As of 8:45 a.m., the lanes were reopened after the driver was pulled from the truck and transported to a hospital with minor injuries, Simmons said.
