Oil tanker departs Shell Martinez refinery hits San Francisco Bay Bridge

The oil tanker Overseas Reymar struck “a glancing blow” to a tower of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge after unloading crude at a Royal Dutch Shell refinery the day before.

The collision occurred at 11:20 a.m. local time, the U.S. Coast Guard said in an e-mailed statement. No oil was released, a notice to the California Emergency Management Agency shows.

The tanker was damaged above the waterline, with no breach of the hull, said Captain Peter McIsaac, port agent for the San Francisco Bar Pilots.
