FREMONT (CBS SF) — An injury crash between a charter bus initially misidentified as a Facebook bus and a large truck west of the Dumbarton Bridge Toll Plaza in Fremont Wednesday afternoon is currently blocking lanes, according to authorities.

CHP reported the crash between the bus and what was described as a large blue truck just after 2 p.m. CHP later identified the bus as a “Facebook bus.”

At around 2:30 p.m., CHP reported a severe traffic alert and confirmed that the accident involved injuries just before the span on CA-84  west of toll plaza.

Authorities said that the unmarked charter bus was pulled over to the shoulder of eastbound CA-84 after the Dumbarton Bridge when the truck rear ended the bus while traveling at a high rate of speed.

CHP said there were no passengers on the bus at the time of the crash. Authorities did not say why the charter bus was pulled over at the time of the crash.

CHP later clarified that the bus involved in the accident was not necessarily a Facebook bus, explaining that the term “Facebook bus” is used generically for any charter bus in CHP communications.

CHP said the drivers of both vehicles were transported to an area hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

All lanes were reopened as of about 6:44 p.m.

    It’s a Facebook bus. Facebook charters these unmarked white buses, then claims they aren’t Facebook buses because they aren’t owned or operated by Facebook. That’s total BS. If it’s carrying Facebook employees to Facebook, it’s a Facebook bus.

    BTW, I always see them parked out there. They’re waiting for the Facebook employees to leave work so they can finish driving across the bridge to pick them up and take them home. Looks like this Facebook bus didn’t pull far enough off the road….
