OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a wrong-way driver led to a six-vehicle crash that left seven people injured on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge.

California Highway Patrol officer Daniel Hill tells the Oakland Tribune that the vehicles collided on the eastbound side of the eastern span of the bridge at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday.

CHP Officer William Ogilvie tells KNTV-TV that three of those hurt were critical, and all lanes of the bridge's eastern span were temporarily shut down to allow paramedics to get to the injured and get them to hospitals.

All lanes were open again about two hours after the crash.

Fire departments from both Oakland and San Francisco were responding.
