An oil tanker struck San Francisco’s Bay Bridge Monday morning, but authorities say it is not leaking oil into the water. A fireboat has been dispatched to the bridge’s westernmost tower, where the 75-foot ship hit on its starboard side. While there is confirmed damage to both the tanker and the tower, Coast Guard investigators were unable to provide further details.
