A big rig and car collided under unclear circumstances in Foster City Monday morning.
The crash took place on July 11th on the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge just before 6:20 a.m.
One person suffered unspecified injuries and was treated at the scene.
Authorities also shut down the westbound lanes of the bridge for a period of time as crews worked at the scene.
The accident remains under investigation to determine fault.
typically weigh 20-30 times as much as passenger cars which leaves occupants of smaller cars more vulnerable.
It is also much more difficult for larger trucks to stop so their braking capability can also be a factor in these collisions.
According to the D.O.T., in 2019 67% of fatal collisions involving large trucks were occupants of a passenger car.
