Big-rig crashes into Golden Gate Bridge toll plaza



A big-rig crashed into the toll plaza at the Golden Gate Bridge Tuesday morning, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

The crash was reported at 8:47 a.m. in the third southbound lane from the left at the toll plaza on the southern end of the bridge, CHP Officer Ron Simmons said.

The toll plaza was damaged and big-rig has damage to an axle, Simmons said. No injuries were reported.

The big-rig is disabled and blocking the lane, and a heavy-duty tow truck has been called in to remove it, Simmons said. He did not know how long that would take.

Golden Gate Bridge spokeswoman Mary Currie said tolling equipment was damaged but the damage was not serious.

Currie said the lane the big-rig driver tried to use was too narrow for the truck.
