The southbound U.S. Highway 101 to eastbound Interstate Highway 80 interchange has reopened after a fiery car blocked the roadway for about an hour this morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Officers responded to a report of a crash at southbound Highway 101, at the eastbound Highway 80 on-ramp, at about midnight, Officer Peter Van Eckert said.

The car crashed into the center divide and then caught on fire. It was the lone car in the crash, Van Eckert said.

A Sig-alert was issued at 12:16 a.m. with the on-ramp blocked by the car. It was lifted at 12:53 a.m. when the roadway was cleared.

Van Eckert said the driver got out of the car but was then transported to San Francisco General Hospital.
The driver is expected to survive.
