  • A major traffic accident near SFO shut down the freeway in both directions temporarily Wednesday morning, complicating holiday travelers' plans to get to the airport.

All lanes have reopened on U.S. Highway 101 after a rollover crash earlier this morning blocked traffic in both directions near San Francisco International Airport.

The crash was reported at 6:12 a.m. just south of Interstate Highway 380, California Highway Patrol Officer Kevin Bartlett said.

Preliminary information indicates that a northbound vehicle overturned and landed in southbound lanes, Bartlett said.

No other vehicles appear to have been involved.

The driver suffered cuts and bruises and possibly a broken jaw, Bartlett said.

The crash initially shut down lanes on both sides of the highway. Northbound lanes reopened at about 7:20 a.m., and southbound lanes reopened at about 7:40 a.m.

Traffic in the area remained heavy as of 8:15 a.m.
