CHP Motorcycle Officer Suffers Only Minor Bruising in Bay Bridge Crash

A California Highway Patrol motorcycle officer suffered minor injuries in a crash on the Bay Bridge around noontime today, CHP officials said.

The crash was reported on the eastbound lower deck of the bridge near the off-ramp to Treasure Island, according to the CHP.

The officer’s bike slid into another motorcycle but the second motorcycle was not knocked down, CHP Officer Vu Williams said.

The officer suffered minor bruising and was taken to San Francisco General Hospital for evaluation, Williams said.

Two eastbound lanes of the bridge were closed until shortly after 1 p.m. while the CHP investigated, CHP officials said.
