    Five Signs That It’s Time to Get Help for Shoulder Pain

    In the center of the Coronado Bay Bridge, two cars overturned in the middle of rush hour traffic, bringing traffic leaving Coronado to a halt.

    Around 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, California Highway Patrol officers received the report that two vehicles overturned blocking all lanes except the left lane heading east.  A Ford Explorer and a Nissan Maxima had collided. One of the cars had a trailer, CHP said

    The eastbound lanes were shut down to all traffic near where the old toll booths stood while crews cleaned up a fuel spill and called in three tow trucks to clear away the wreckage.

    Traffic started across the bridge again at 5:25 p.m.  Even so, the backup from the accident filled the side streets of Coronado according to video shot from a television helicopter.
