Crash snarls traffic on northbound Interstate 275 in St. Pete

A crash backed up traffic for several miles early Wednesday on the northbound side of Interstate 275 in St. Petersburg, delaying commuters waiting to cross the Howard Frankland Bridge.

The crash happened just after 7:30 a.m. near the Fourth Street N overpass, according to Florida Highway Patrol reports. Details of what happened were unclear, but at least one person was taken to a local hospital.

The accident reduced traffic on the northbound side of the interstate to a single lane as authorities worked the scene. Cars were backed up from the bridge to as far south as 54th Avenue N.

All lanes of the highway had reopened as of 9 a.m., but traffic remained slow as cars headed toward the bridge.
