The U.S. Coast Guard has rescued the person who went into the
water from the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge after a disagreement that occurred
following a vehicle accident on the bridge this afternoon, according to the
California Highway Patrol.
           
All westbound and eastbound lanes of state Highway 92 on the bridge have reopened as of shortly after 4 p.m., but traffic remains snarled in the area, CHP Officer Peter Van Eckhardt said.
           
The collision was originally reported at 2:25 p.m. involving a white Honda SUV and possibly another vehicle, according to Van Eckhardt.
           
He said that after the accident, two relatives in one of the vehicles got into a disagreement and one of them ended up in the water.

Officials rescued the person near the south side of the bridge, a section that is only about 15 feet above the water.
