SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The scene around an abandoned suitcase that tied up traffic and caused transit delays in San Francisco has been cleared.
After calling in the bomb squad and using a robot to check what was described as a suspicious package on a sidewalk in the city's Excelsior District, police determined around 6:30 p.m. Friday that the suitcase did not contain any explosives.
Police spokesman Sgt. Michael Andraychak says officers had closed sections of San Jose and Geneva avenues, some adjoining streets and ramps to nearby Interstate 280 after being called to the area around 3 p.m.
The closures caused delays on city streets, disrupted some transit service and backed up freeway traffic during the city's evening commute.
