SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Authorities say all southbound lanes of Highway 101 have reopened and traffic is slowly getting back to normal in San Francisco after a dump truck hit cars and overturned.

KGO-TV reports (https://abc7ne.ws/1TtrTuN ) Caltrans employees worked all day to clear the construction materials from the highway and to repair a fence on the Silver Avenue overpass, which is expected to open Tuesday night.

The recycling dump truck rammed the cars before hitting the railing and spilling its load of wood and drywall below the freeway Tuesday morning.

The driver may have lost control of the brakes. All southbound traffic was stopped and cars were diverted onto I-280.

Police say the dump truck driver was able to crawl out of the truck’s shattered windshield and is cooperating with authorities.
