SAN FRANCISCO —
At least one person was hospitalized after a three-vehicle collision sent two cars off of U.S. Highway 101 near Candlestick Park in San Francisco and onto the rocks by the Bay, a California Highway Patrol officer said.
The crash was reported at around 3:35 p.m. on northbound Highway 101 near Harney Way, CHP Officer Kevin Bartlett said.
Bartlett said the cars narrowly missed the water and emergency crews were working to get the cars off of the rocks by that end of the evening.
One lane of northbound Highway 101 was closed to traffic and was expected to reopen by 5:30 p.m., Bartlett said.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
