Update: All lanes on the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge are now open.
Multiple lanes of the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge remain closed in both directions this morning after two separate traffic collisions, a California Highway Patrol spokesman said.
The first crash was reported in a westbound lane of the bridge around 6 a.m. between a big-rig and a stalled pickup truck, CHP Officer Art Montiel said.
Fuel began leaking from the big-rig, and the U.S. Coast Guard and the state Department of Fish and Game were notified in case some of the fuel has dropped into the bay, Montiel said.
Then at about 6:45 a.m., an onlooker traveling east apparently struck a CHP patrol car, which moved forward and struck a fire truck, Montiel said.
Both the CHP car and fire truck were unoccupied and no officers or firefighters were injured, he said.
An ambulance was called to the scene for that collision but Montiel did not have any information about possible injuries.
Both westbound and eastbound lanes of the bridge have opened and closed sporadically throughout the morning, and CHP officials said lanes could be closed until around 10 a.m.
Motorists are advised to take alternate routes, including the Dumbarton Bridge, according to the CHP.
