Crockett: Sig-alert after Carquinez Bridge car fire, collision

CROCKETT — California Highway Patrol officers were responding to a car fire and collision Tuesday atop the Carquinez Bridge that blocked all Interstate 80 lanes, authorities said.

Shortly before 9 p.m., CHP officers responded to reports of the collision, possibly associated with unspecified police activity, in eastbound I-80 lanes just east of the Pomona Street exit.

Crockett-Carquinez Fire Department firefighters also responded to the incident, saying in a social-media post that two vehicles’ fires had been contained and that multiple ambulances were on scene.

The CHP issued a Sig-alert at 9 p.m. with no estimated time of reopening, and worked to divert eastbound traffic west at Cummings Skyway.

Officers suggested eastbound Highway 4 to northbound I-680 and the Benicia Bridge as an alternate route for drivers.

Check back for updates.

E78 and WT278 on scene. Fire contained on two vehicles. Multiple ambulances on scene. Backup will continue with police investigation underway.
