SAN FRANCISCO -- A big rig truck crashed into toll equipment on the Golden Gate Bridge Tuesday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The big rig remains stuck in the toll plaza as of 10:30 a.m. as CHP works to tow it away, said CHP spokesman Andrew Barclay. Three of the eight toll booths are currently closed due to the collision, Barclay said.
The driver of the truck, while traveling south on Highway 101, used a narrow toll lane reserved for smaller vehicles and crashed into toll booth equipment at around 8:45 a.m., the CHP said. The crash caused the truck's front axel to break.
The driver, a man approximately 40 years old from Canada, was not injured and is cooperating with authorities. The CHP plans to briefly shut down all lanes in order to two the truck, Barclay said.
The estimated damage to the truck and the toll booth have not been determined.
