If you typically rely on the Bay Bridge to get you to your job in San Francisco, well, you might want to consider trying out BART this morning.

The upper deck of the Bay Bridge is reportedly closed this morning after a motorcyclist lost control of his bike and crashed at about 6:25 a.m. Emergency crews were forced to close down the upper deck while clearing the accident.

The closure isn't expected to last long, but the delays into San Francisco are.

According to KTVU, the solo crash happened in the left lane near Treasure Island; the motorist was injured, however his condition is unknown at this time.

The crash brought traffic to a standstill, with cars quickly backing up all the way to Berkeley, according to news reports.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
