SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — An empty oil tanker caused minor damage Monday when it struck a tower in the middle of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge while navigating beneath the hulking span, officials said.

The 752-foot Overseas Reymar from the Marshall Islands rammed the tower about 11:20 a.m. as it headed out to sea, according to the Coast Guard and state transportation officials. The impact didn’t affect traffic on the busy bridge — the main artery between San Francisco and Oakland, Ney said.
