Foster City police are looking for witnesses to a collision and dispute that blocked lanes on the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge Friday afternoon and ended with one person in the water.

The collision, reported at 2:25 p.m. Friday, involved a white Honda SUV and possibly another vehicle, according to CHP Officer Peter Van Eckert.

Two people in one of the vehicles got into a disagreement and one person ended up in the water at a point where the bridge is only about 15 feet above the water, officials said.

The person was pulled from the water by the U.S. Coast Guard and fire officials.

Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to contact Foster City police at (650) 286-3300 and ask for Detective Bill Beck.
