A crash involving several vehicles caused major delays on the Howard Frankland Bridge this morning and left at least one person in critical condition.
The Florida Highway Patrol says it happened shortly after 7 a.m., and initially only involved two vehicles- a Dodge pickup truck and a Chevy sedan.
Both vehicles had pulled into the emergency lane, and a Road Ranger had parked behind them to assist them when things took a terrible turn.
Troopers say a passing utility truck carrying drywall and other construction supplies veered into the emergency lane for unknown reasons, and hit both the Road Ranger vehicle and the Chevy involved in the initial accident.
The impact then sent the Chevy into the Dodge pickup truck and then up onto the guard rail.
Troopers say the utility truck flipped in the process and landed upside down, but it was the driver of the Road Ranger who received the worst injuries.
That person was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital where they remained in critical condition Thursday afternoon.
For a time, the bridge was reduced to one southbound lane, resulting in delays back to Dale Mabry Highway for most of the morning commute. But things had cleared by 10:30.
Charges are pending in the investigation.
