Two California Highway Patrol officers and three others were injured after an SUV hit a sweeper truck near an anti-vaccine rally on the Golden Gate Bridge Thursday evening, officials said.
Just before 6 p.m., two officers and three Golden Gate Bridge workers were injured when a Ford Explorer hit a sweeper truck on the northbound lanes of the Golden Gate Bridge, according to the CHP.
Aerial footage from NBC Bay Area's SkyRanger showed hundreds of people surrounding the vehicles and officers investigating the incident.
CHP said the officers suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Golden Gate Bridge officials said the three bridge workers suffered minor injuries with one of them being transported to a hospital for treatment.
The Southern Marin Fire District transported three of victims to the hospital.
Earlier Thursday, hundreds of people who oppose vaccine mandates gathered for a protest near the Golden Gate Bridge.
CHP told NBC Bay Area that one person was arrested early in the protest. They said a driver stopped their car on the bridge to put out signs and then resisted arrest.
Aerials from NBC Bay Area's SkyRanger showed hundreds of people protesting on the San Francisco side of the Golden Gate Bridge while CHP officers were trying to prevent them from going on the bridge.
Golden Gate Bridge officials said that the east sidewalk was closed for pedestrians for safety, while the west sidewalk remained open for cyclists during the protest.
